Being heralded as "The voices that launched a movement", the historic magazine has named "The Silence Breakers" as their Person of the Year.  These are women who were brave enough to talk about their own experiences with sexual harassment and assault with powerful men in the industry, and sparked a massive #metoo campaign in order for other women and men to open up the conversation as well.

Some of the women featured include actresses Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd, social activist Tarana Burke, singer Taylor Swift, corporate lobbyist Adama Iwu, worker Isabel Pascual and former Uber engineer Susan Fowler.

Donald Trump was the runner-up for Person of the Year. Chinese President Xi Jinping came in third.
