"Silence Breakers" picked as Time magazine's Person of the Year

TIME in its article says, " The hashtag #MeToo (swiftly adapted into #BalanceTonPorc, #YoTambien, #Ana_kaman and many others), which to date has provided an umbrella of solidarity for millions of people to come forward with their stories, is part of the picture, but not all of it.

A little while ago, Donald Trump, who Time made Person Of The Year last year, tweeted that Time had offered to grant him the same honor again this year but that he'd have to sit for an interview and a photo shoot. And TIME magazine has acknowledged those countless victims this year by conferring the title to the "The Silence Breakers".

Favourable World Cup draws for Russian Federation and England
With a squad largely made up of players from Tunisian clubs Esperance and Etoile du Sahel, they also lack top-level pedigree. "We've got six days of rest after our first game, which if they are anxious about travel, that shouldn't be an issue".

Founder of the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke, appeared on the cover along with actresses Rose McGowan, Selma Blair and Ashley Judd, who broke the silence by coming forward with accusations against Harvey Weinstein.

Time editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal revealed the cover on Wednesday morning's Today show, which features Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler and a woman whose face is obscured, meant to represent the women who haven't yet come forward. She posted a powerful blog entry in February about harassment she faced during her time at the company. Swift, one of the earliest to share her story of abuse, recently won a lawsuit against Denver radio DJ David Mueller, whom she accused of groping her in 2013. Actress Alyssa Milano was sent a screenshot of the phrase and chose to send it out on Twitter.

Pope Francis Prays Alongside Rohingya Muslim Refugees During Trip To Bangladesh
It was the first time the pope had used the term Rohingya on his Asia trip, and he did so in a very strong theological way. The Rohingya are not recognized as an official minority in Myanmar, effectively meaning they are denied citizenship.

While originally started by African American activist Tarana Burke 10 years ago, the current #MeToo movement has been credited to actress Alyssa Milano, who tweeted on October 15 - 10 days after the New York Times article ran - that if every woman who had been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote "Me too" as their status, it might give others a sense of the problem's magnitude. A strawberry picker from California named Isabel Pascual was one of many to take to the streets of California to join stars and civilians alike in their march against the abusive behavior. People from the magazine disputed Trump's claim, and now we have a new Person Of The Year.
