Timeís 2017 Person of the Year Isnít Trump. Itís a Rebuke of Trump.
 
One year ago, a man widely accused of sexual misconduct was interviewed by a man who has now himself been accused of widespread sexual misconduct on the Today show about being named Timeís 2016 Person of the Year. A few days later, at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, the former lamented the fact that he had been named person instead of man of the year.

What a difference a year makes. On Wednesday, Time named ďThe Silence BreakersĒóthose who have publicly spoken out about and taken action against sexual harassment and assaultóthe 2017 People of the Year. The award has gone not to Donald Trump, as he bragged it might have, but to the women (and some men) who have broken the kinds of silences and norms that have allowed men like him to thrive.
