Dubbed "the silence breakers" in Time's accompanying feature and the #MeToo movement on its shortlist, the magazine's latest honouree recognizes the women and men who, in increasing numbers and with greater success since a pair of October features in The New York Times and New Yorker laid bare the serial predatory behaviour of iconic film producer Harvey Weinstein, have been stepping forward and sharing their stories of being victims of harassment.

On Time's cover is a composite group photograph featuring Judd, along with singer Taylor Swift and ex-Uber engineer Susan Fowler.

OR state senator Sara Gelser outed member of her own party, Jeff Kruse - who was stripped of his committee responsibilities following the investigation, NBC's Megyn Kelly revealed in October that she had complained to Fox News executives about Bill O'Reilly harassing several women in the workplace - including another journalist featured by Time for this story, former Fox News Contributor Wendy Walsh.

"The idea that influential, inspirational individuals shape the world could not be more apt this year", he added. "But it has actually been simmering for years, decades, centuries", Time's story said.

The #MeToo movement represents a broad range of people, mostly women who made public their sexual harassment experience.

And now, TIME has honoured the women who aided this ground-breaking movement with the title of "Person of the Year".

"The galvanizing actions of the women on our cover. along with those of hundreds of others, and of many men as well, have unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s", the magazine's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said in a statement. In the end, however, it was women who made a firm stance against sexual harassment and assault won it. The case ended in a mistrial.

The hashtag, which rose to prominence this year after actor Alyssa Milano tweeted about it, was originally started by Tarana Burke ten years ago.
