Time's Person of the Year: 'Silence Breakers' speaking out against sexual harassment

The image is now a symbol of all the women and men out in the world who are unable to speak up about their experiences with sexual assault because it may negatively impact their lives. Time praised those who have given "voice to open secrets, for moving whisper networks onto social networks, for pushing us all to stop accepting the unacceptable".

Time editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal revealed the cover on Wednesday morning's Today show, which features Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler and a woman whose face is obscured, meant to represent the women who haven't yet come forward.

Actress Alyssa Milano and #MeToo creator Tarana Burke appeared on the Today show, which recently experienced its own harassment scandal that ousted former anchor Matt Lauer, as well as Megyn Kelly TODAY to discuss the Time cover. "Today" host Savannah Guthrie acknowledged Wednesday that this year's victor hits "close to home" and mentioned Lauer by name.

"If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write "me too" as a reply to this tweet," she wrote.

The US President tweeted last month that he "took a pass" on the offer of doing a photo shoot and interview for Time. The women's rights activist coined the term while working with sexual violence survivors more than a decade ago, although she has not always received full recognition.

Milano says she wasn't aware of Burke's earlier contribution when she made the tweet, and has since credited her.

"The galvanizing actions of the women on our cover ... along with those of hundreds of others, and of many men as well, have unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s", Felsenthal said. "This is just the start". It's not just a moment, it's a movement.

"As women, we have to support each other and stand together and say, 'That's it. We're done. No more.' It's vital to me that we really set in some actionable things that we can do to continue this momentum". The Me Too movement was a social media outreach that shared women's experience with sexual harassment and assault.

The Silence Breakers were the choice for the cover over President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, quarterback Colin Kaepernick and director Patty Jenkins. He has denied any wrongdoing.
