Time’s Person of the Year Has Been Revealed – and It’s Several Peopleby

TIME Magazine is well-known for hosting their ‘Person of the Year’ celebration with their end of year issues on an annual basis – and despite many claims to the contrary, the decision is largely based upon who made the most news in the past year, or whom can be considered to have wielded significant change upon our world culture over the past twelve months. Last year’s winner was, without doubt, U.S. President Donald Trump – with Mark Zuckerberg, Vladimir Putin and even Adolf Hitler being among recipients in previous years. This award is generally seen as something of a time capsule to reflect the movements of the past twelve months – and while many believed Trump would claim the accolade once again this year, the magazine has instead opted to honour a very different news story.

The Silence Breakers, as named by TIME, have been hailed as a collective Person of the Year – those who have come forward over the year to speak out against sexual harassment after years of concealment. This includes the ground-breaking #MeToo movement and the outpouring of revelations that came to pass following accusations made against former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein, according to allegers that number more than forty, is reported to have sexually harassed rising stars in Hollywood – and even those already well-established for several years – and a number of legal proceedings are beginning to take speed in light of testimony having been brought forward. It is thanks to the likes of Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, Megyn Kelly and Terry Crews that such incidents behind the scenes in entertainment have continued to go unnoticed.

The Weinstein scandal is undoubtedly one of the most shocking stories to have unfurled over the year, and with more established stars continuing to either speak out about inappropriate behavior behind the scenes, several more are finding themselves facing allegations – meaning that, for many who may have been suffering in silence for years, a sense of justice, or at least closure, can be brought. TIME Magazine, in our opinion, are more than right in their move to name the Silence Breakers – as popular culture has certainly taken a significant and historically important swerve in the past few months which we believe will continue to ripple across 2018 and beyond. These voices have, at least, inspired others to come forward and speak up – and that, if nothing else, is incredibly important.
