The Silence Breakers
In Sexual Harassment Scandal
12/6/2017 6:07 AM PST
TIME didn’t pick a person of the year this time around … they picked people who opened the floodgates in America’s sexual harassment awakening.
TIME chose “The Silence Breakers,” including Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift — who sued a DJ and won earlier this year — and former Uber engineer Susan Fowler. Also pictured on the cover … activist Adama Iwu and strawberry picker Isabel Pascual.
TIME writes, “Movie stars are supposedly nothing like you and me. They’re svelte, glamorous, self-possessed. They wear dresses we can’t afford and live in houses we can only dream of. Yet it turns out that — in the most painful and personal ways — movie stars are more like you and me than we ever knew.”
