'Time' Magazine Names Abuse 'Silence Breakers' as Person of the Year

This is What’s Trending Today...

Time Magazine has named the “Silence Breakers” -- those who have publicly shared their stories of sexual -- as its 2017 Person of the Year.

Since early October, numerous women have spoken out about sexual by powerful men in the fields of entertainment, news media, politics, business and sports.

Time praised those who have given “voice to open secrets, for moving whisper networks onto social media, for pushing us all to stop accepting the unacceptable.”

The magazine’s cover features Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift, Susan Fowler and others who say they have been sexually harassed.

The magazine made the announcement Wednesday morning in New York City on NBC’s “Today” show. Last week, the very same show’s longtime co-host Matt Lauer, was dismissed from his job. NBC said it acted after receiving a report that Lauer had sexually abused a coworker.

Women who spoke out against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and others helped form the #MeToo movement. Millions of victims of harassment and other sex abuse told their stories on social media sites.

The messages on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook began after actress and activist Alyssa Milano followed a suggestion from a friend on Facebook. She tweeted: “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.”

The hashtag was tweeted nearly a million times in the following 48 hours.

Activist Tarana Burke created the #MeToo hashtag 10 years ago to spread information and understanding about sexual violence.

Milano and Burke appeared together Wednesday on the “Today” show. Burke said, “This is just the start. I’ve been saying from the beginning it’s not just a moment, it’s a movement.

“Now the work really begins.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Time’s 2015 Person of the Year, commented on the magazine's decision through a spokesman. She said this year’s winners should be thanked for “having the courage to break the silence on sexual assaults and for the worldwide discussion that they have launched.”

Time says U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping were the second and third choices for its Person of the Year.

Many women have accused Trump, himself, of sexual harassment and assault. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Trump, the magazine’s 2016 Person of the Year, wrote on Twitter recently that Time told him he would “probably” be named again this year if he agreed to an interview and photo shoot. Trump said he refused.

Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2017

Time has disputed Trump’s claims.

The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.

— TIME (@TIME) November 25, 2017

And that’s What’s Trending Today.
