This image provided by Time magazine, shows the cover of the magazine’s Person of the Year edition as “The Silence Breakers,” those who have shared their stories about sexual assault and harassment. The magazine’s cover features Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift, Susan Fowler and others who say they have been harassed. (Time Magazine via AP)
And here’s an accompanying video from the Time Facebook page:
Lots more to read, see and hear at the Time website.
Notably missing from the cover is Tarana Burke. Although she appears in the video and elsewhere in the Time coverage, she founded the “me too” movement 10 years ago. Surely she is one of the “voices that launched the movement,” as the cover states?
Tarana Burke is shown in this Oct. 19, 2017 image. Burke is the activist who started #MeToo, in 2006. On Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, Time magazine named the #MeToo movement or the “Silence Breakers” as the “Person of the Year,” a nod to the millions of people who came forward with their stories of sexual harassment, assault and rape.
