Twitter Is Going Crazy For “Time Magazine’s” Person Of The Year

BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY Latest news: TITLE

We have to admit that after this roller coaster of a year, it was nice to wake up today, December 6th, and see that the #MeToo movement made it to the cover of Time magazine. Twitter’s reaction to >Time‘s Person of the Year confirmed that people are ready to empower the victims of sexual assault.

On the cover, a wide range of women are depicted. There’s actress Ashley Judd and singer Taylor Swift, but there are also women of other industries — one anonymous woman’s arm, farm worker Isabel Pascual, lobbyist Adama Iwu, and former Uber engineer, Susan Fowler. All have “broken the silence” about predatory sexual behavior within their industries.

interviewed dozens of women and men about their experiences, and one thing became clear: This is a problem within every part of society. One woman, an anonymous hospital worker who’s afraid her family will be affected by disclosing her name, told Time of her experience with assault: “I kept thinking, ‘Did I do something, did I say something, did I look a certain way to make him think that was O.K.?'”" data-reactid="25">The magazine interviewed dozens of women and men about their experiences, and one thing became clear: This is a problem within every part of society.

The shame and guilt surrounding assault — along with the fear of being blamed when you come forward with an allegation — is exactly what the #MeToo movement hopes to change.

And the People of Twitter are here for it.

What a great message this gives to all women and men who are not afraid to stand up: The Silence Breakers are TIME’s 2017 Person of the Year! Thank you #TimeMagazine #PersonOfTheYear ]]>��<![CDATA[]]>��<![CDATA[]]>��<![CDATA[pic.twitter.com/CbBwaWh540

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

Donald Trump made it into Time’s Person of the Year issue after all: As one of the accused.

We didn't even bend.

Hillary was right. We ARE stronger together.

Women have had it w bosses & co-workers who not only cross boundaries but don’t even seem to know that boundaries exist. They’ve had it w the fear of retaliation, of being blackballed, of being fired from a job they can’t afford to lose #TIMEPOY #MeToo #TheSilenceBreakers pic.twitter.com/01SUN4Evvh

#MeToo on the cover and an alleged sexual predator as runner-up is a pretty neat metaphor for why my head always hurts now. https://t.co/kSwsHhFJCw

If your daughter is 11 or older, chances are, she' also saying #metoo. Let her know it's never her fault. https://t.co/zQhx4SfftC pic.twitter.com/R6IX7xZDfE

Taylor Swift being on Time's Person of the Year cover is WELL DESERVED. She not only went against her own sexual assaulter, she faced the media and the whole world while doing so. AND SHE WON- then after the trial donated money to charities raising awareness about sexual assault. pic.twitter.com/2vTT1x8vR0

If anything great came out of this year, it was women realizing we're not alone. Thank goodness @TaranaBurke started this movement. Stand up. Speak out. Let's not be silent anymore. #MeToo https://t.co/fmsSs3s3Jd

I'm happy Tarana Burke is being acknowledged as the creator of the #MeToo hashtag and movement. The vital role of Black women as social media influencers can't be ignored anymore. https://t.co/ooQnz7R3WJ

Here's to the women who spoke up.

You inspire us all to keep speaking up.

While the #MeToo movt is rightly criticized for ignoring WoC voices--I'm thankful this @TIME #PersonOfTheYear2017 story centered these courageous Black & Latina plaintiffs in their lawsuit against the Plaza Hotel. https://t.co/pJxyxO4ZRN pic.twitter.com/i1CIQHyr09

I'm legit crying Thank you @TaranaBurke for starting something millions of us needed #Metoo https://t.co/FGzznJeNLB

Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo hashtag, told Glamour that now it’s all about the next steps. She said, “To me, 2018 will be all about processing #MeToo. The next step in the movement will be helping women navigate what happens after they disclose an experience. It’s about what happens if someone posts #MeToo and nobody “likes” their status and how to be advocates in our communities. How to talk to children about this. Discussing the sexual harassment teenagers deal with in school.”

'Silence Breakers' were chosen as @TIME's Person of the Year.
