The Silence Breakers named Time Person of the Year: 2017's #MeToo movement

Behind the scenes of the Person of the Year cover shoot San Francisco Nov. 19 2017

Time's list of "Silence Breakers" includes big names like Rose McGowan and Terry Crews alongside names the public has likely never heard.

"The image you see partially on the cover is of a woman we talked to... who doesn't feel that she can come forward without threatening her livelihood", explained Edward Felsenthal, Time editor in chief. "This reckoning appears to have sprung up overnight", TIME's Person of the Year profile read.

In the wake of revelations about Harvey Weinstein and other men, millions have shared their stories about being sexually harassed and assaulted.

Actor Alyssa Milano, who helped make the #MeToo movement go viral on Twitter, said, "We have to teach our boys from a very young age that it's important that not only they take care of women, but that they are respectful and that they understand that here are things that are not OK".

"Its was especially hard this year, a year of so much disruption in the United States in around the world", said Felsenthal.

The hundreds of women who have been speaking out about sexual harassment and sexual assault were also up against Colin Kaepernick, Robert Mueller, Jeff Bezos, the Dreamers, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and Kim Jong Un of North Korea.

The runner up for Person of the Year was President Donald Trump, followed by President of China, Xi Jinping.

Time has been selecting the year's most influential person, group or idea since 1927.

TIME magazine's Person of the Year is always a highly anticipated honor, but after the past year of unprecedented upheaval, the honor is going to the group of women breaking the silence.

TIME interviewed dozens of women and men who experienced sexual harassment at their jobs, including movie stars, hotel maids, retail clerks, Silicon Valley programmers and farm workers.

Next up were the Dreamers, whose plight has been the subject of much political discourse after President Trump and his administration revoked an Obama-era program meant to give the children who were born to illegal immigrants a path to citizenship in the United States.

Trump was once again a finalist this year.
