The Time person of the year is not actually one person.

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 said in a statement shared with TPM.

Trump claimed last month that the magazine told him he was the likely victor for the second consecutive year, which Time later disputed. It also highlights the plight of sexual harassment among people who don't have as large of an audience by featuring Isabel Pascual, a woman from Mexico who works picking strawberries, and Adama Iwu, a corporate lobbyist in Sacramento. The publication gave the title to the "The Silence Breakers" of the #MeToo movement for giving a voice to those who have been sexually harassed and assaulted.

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), who championed legislation that would overhaul harassment reporting in Congress, told CNN she was thrilled with the shift to a more "enlightened" culture. The case ended in a mistrial. The latter, USA Today reported, represents women who have yet to come forward with their stories.

The President himself has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by at least 13 women, but he has denied all the allegations and has repeatedly called the women "liars".

While originally started by African American activist Tarana Burke 10 years ago, the current #MeToo movement has been credited to actress Alyssa Milano, who tweeted on October 15 - 10 days after the New York Times article ran - that if every woman who had been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote "Me too" as their status, it might give others a sense of the problem's magnitude. Instead, the magazine announced it was honoring the women and men who "span all races, all income classes, all occupations and virtually all corners of the globe" for breaking their silence.

Social activist Tarana Burke created the "me too" movement a decade ago to help sexual assault survivors in disadvantaged communities.

"When a movie star says #MeToo, it becomes easier to believe the cook who's been quietly enduring for years", a Time article read.

US President Donald Trump was second, while Chinese Premier Xi Jinping came in the third spot.
