I've been feeling like something was off with coverage of sexual harassment lately. TIME gave me what I was missing.
So many of us have been focused on the salacious deeds of those who’ve done wrong. But the TIME Person of the Year turns the focus back on the people who were subjected to those wrongs and had the courage to say “enough!”
This Person of the Year salutes and acknowledges all of them in photos and tells the story of how the groundswell began and continues. It represents people from every group of American society, coming from all walks of life. TIME spoke with the first women to speak out on Weinstein, like Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, and others who told their own stories, like Terry Crews and Tarana Burke, the activist who started the #metoo campaign.
The cover image even reserves a space for the victims we may never know about because of all the many reasons they need to remain silent.
Wishing healing and power to anyone who has ever been a victim… may you never be one or feel that way again.
