Time magazine’s Person of the Year is ‘’The Silence Breakers”
“The Silence Breakers” — those who have shared their stories about sexual assault and harassment have been collectively named Time magazine’s Person of the Year.Numerous women have spoken out since October about sexual misconduct by dozens of high-profile men in entertainment, media, business and sports.
The magazine’s cover features Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift and others who said they have been harassed. Women who spoke out, initially against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and then others, helped to start the #MeToo movement, with millions of people telling stories of sexual misconduct on social media. The hashtag was tweeted nearly a million times in 48 hours. #MeToo was actually founded by activist Tarana Burke a decade ago to raise awareness about sexual violence.
