NEW YORK — The "Silence Breakers" — those who have shared their stories about sexual assault and harassment — have been named Time magazine's Person of the Year.
Numerous women have spoken out publicly since October about sexual misconduct by dozens of high-profile men in entertainment, media, business and sports. Time praised those who have given "voice to open secrets, for moving whisper networks onto social networks, for pushing us all to stop accepting the unacceptable."
