"The Silence Breakers" who sparked a national outcry over sexual harassment1 across the United States have been named as Time magazine's 2017 Person of the Year.
 
揭露美国性侵事件的“打破沉默者”提名时代杂志2017年度人物。
 
 
The magazine's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal revealed the selection on Wednesday morning's Today show, along with a cover, a composite group photo that includes actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, and former Uber engineer Susan Fowler.
 
"The galvanizing actions of the women on our cover... along with those of hundreds of others, and of many men as well, have unleashed2 one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s," Felsenthal said in a statement.
 
Time designated as The Silence Breakers the individual, mostly women, who have come forward this year to allege3 sexual misconduct against some of the society's most prominent figures and public officials. 
 
Their revelations gave traction4 to the #MeToo campaign, which took off on social media and has led to a growing number of people sharing their stories on sexual harassment and abuse. 
 
"Social media acted as a powerful accelerant; the hashtag #MeToo has now been used millions of times in a least 85 countries," Felsenthal said. "The idea that influential5, inspirational individuals shape the world could not be more apt this year." 
 
"For giving voice to open secrets, for moving whisper networks onto social networks, for pushing us all to stop accepting the unacceptable, The Silence Breakers are the 2017 Person of the Year," the editor-in-chief added.
