TIME magazine just announced that the women who sparked the national #MeToo movement -- now dubbed "The Silence Breakers" -- have been awarded Person of the Year.
Tarana Burke, Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift, Rose McGowan -- these are just a few of the faces and names you might recognize in this group. However, I'm glad that lesser known silence breakers have been featured as well, including many women who work in the service industry, such as "The Plaza Hotel Plaintiffs."
“Women have had it with bosses and coworkers who not only cross boundaries but don’t even seem to know that boundaries exist,” Time magazine writes. “These silence breakers have started a revolution of refusal, gathering strength by the day.” pic.twitter.com/NUr6wo50ZR— Jennifer Jacobs (@JenniferJJacobs) December 6, 2017

This was conceived, reported and written by women. It was fact-checked by women. The video was shot and edited by women. The layout and photo spread were designed by women. It's one of the reasons I'm proud to work at @time https://t.co/ekMMIBV0Vc— Charlotte Alter (@CharlotteAlter) December 6, 2017
