“The Silence Breakers”: Time Names The #MeToo Movement As Person Of The Year

by Chanel AdamsPublished Dec 6, 2017

On Wednesday, Dec. 6, Time announced its 2017 Person of the Year, which is focused on the “Silence Breakers” in Hollywood in light of the sexual assault allegations. Some of those notable people include Rose McGowan, Taylor Swift, Tarana Burke, Ashley Judd, and Alyssa Milano. Some of these women were part of the #MeToo movement while others went through a similar experience.

Celebrities and pop stars may seem like they have the perfect like. They’re beautiful and have it all together. They wear high-fashion, drive fancy cars, and live in massive houses we wish we could own. But, it turns out these celebrities are just like you and me. Like most women, they have dealt with sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace.

Both Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse. Both actresses have been outspoken about their experiences on social media. Meanwhile, Alyssa Milano sparked the #MeToo movement, originally started by activist Tarana Burke. Before the movement took off, Taylor Swift testified in court on Aug. 10, 2017 about being sexually assaulted by DJ David Mueller at her 2013 meet-and-greet. These women are making waves in their own way and inspiring other women to come out and say #MeToo.
