"The Silence Breakers" represent the women who triggered the #metoo national outcry over sexual harassment.  The cover features Actress Ashley Judd, Singer Taylor Swift, former Uber Engineer Susan Fowler, and Activist Tarana Burke who started the concept of "me too". The cover also features a woman whose face is obscured, intended to represent those who haven't yet come forward. Time's Editor in Chief said the people who spoke out about harassment have created one of the greatest velocity shifts in our culture in decades.
Runners up for "Person of the Year" include President Donald Trump, Colin Kaepernick, and Patty Jenkins.
