'TIME' Names the #MeToo 'Silence Breakers' as Person of the Year 2017

Time Magazine has named "The Silence Breakers: The Voices That Launched a Movement" as a collective "Person of the Year".

The cover features actor Ashley Judd, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler, Adama Iwu, singer Taylor Swift and Isabel Pascual and a woman whose face is obscured.

"If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write "me too" as a reply to this tweet", she wrote on Twitter in October. Instead, the magazine announced it was honoring the women and men who "span all races, all income classes, all occupations and virtually all corners of the globe" for breaking their silence.

The article also highlights Tarana Burke, who founded the #MeToo movement more than 10 years ago to highlight the stories of underprivileged people of color affected by sexual abuse.
