TIME has named The Silence Breakers, the individuals who set off a national reckoning over the prevalence of sexual harassment, as its 2017 Person of the Year.
The magazine's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal revealed the selection Wednesday on TODAY along with the cover, a composite group photo that includes actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler and a woman whose face cannot be seen.
"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 in a statement.
The Silence Breakers emerged amid burgeoning allegations of sexual misconduct and assault by film executive Harvey Weinstein. As his list of accusers swelled, so did the number of people who spoke up to expose dozens of other famous individuals in Hollywood, politics, journalism and other industries as sexual predators.

I do not have photo-shop, but if somebody does please put the faces of Clinton's accusers on the cover, rather than Hollywood celbs.
Rose McGowan cropped out?
What an utter joke. If I were Dad to one or a couple of young kids, I’d rather have them discuss with me and their mother at the meal table about what they read in Penthouse or Hustler as opposed to what they read in Time.
How about a picture of Ashley Judd in a pussy hat holding a bloody tampon and screeching at Trump that she was a naaaasty woman?
Oh this was well before she joined the “ me too” brigade that had sex with Harvey in exchange for movie roles
Whacko leftist poster-girl Ashley Judd is the most prominently featured one on the cover.
And Rose McGowan, who started it all, is nowhere to be seen.
They still print that mag?
Yes—I noticed that too—Rose McGowan is the one that started the avalanche, not Ashley Judd.
Ms. Judd is a formerly talented actress who has become a foul-mouthed political gadfly. Miss Swift is an extraordinarily talented singer/songwriter who, admirably in my opinion, successfully sued a man who groped her. The others, I can't speak to.
For good, bad, or indifferent, none of them have had the impact of Mr. Trump. This is nothing more than attempt to curry favor with thier fellow leftists. Once again, Time continues to establish the gold standard for mediocrity in journalism.
Who are these scary bitches crowding out Taylor Swift?
They aren’t fit to shine Taylor’s Grammys. And no Rose McGowan? Judd willingly spread for roles and now suddenly regrets it despite warmly greeting Harvey at the pussy hat parade.
Where were they when Bill Clinton was performing his cigar disappearing act??
Is Seth Rich included in the list even though he can’t break the silence on Hillary emails etc.....
Wheres the pic of the women schlonged by Bill Clinton?
...or just Bill's face
This is intended to affect the Moore race in AL and indirectly, to attack Trump who had 16 different women accuse him of sexual misconduct during his campaign. The problem is that no one reads Time.
Opps...... I thought this was about farts.
Ashley Judd has had too much work done on her face. She’s starting to look like the Caitlyn Jenner creature.
Kudos, but these are the “come lately” ones. Where was TIME when Paula Jones, Juanita Broderick and a host of others were raped by a president!!!
TIME will only report what is no-risk and convenient to them.
So true. Had someone listened when Kathleen and Juanita broke their silence its possible we wouldn’t have had Harvey et al to deal with. Instead the feminist movement aka the Hillary supporters defended Bill to the hilt so they reap what they sow.
