Time Magazine’s 2017 Person of the Year is the Anti Harassment Movement.
Time Magazine‘s Person of the Year for 2017 isn’t a singular individual, but the ever-increasing collective voice belonging to what the publication dubbed “The Silence Breakers,” the anti-harassment movement that has risen up in the wake of a tide of sexual assault and sexual harassment claims against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and a growing list of other prominent men in business, politics and entertainment.
“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,” editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said in a statement announcing this year’s honorees on Wednesday (Dec. 6). “The idea that influential, inspirational individuals shape the world could not be more apt this year. For giving voice to open secrets, for moving whisper networks onto social networks, for pushing us all to stop accepting the unacceptable, The Silence Breakers are the 2017 Person of the Year.”
