CEO Jeff Bezos, Internet-muzzling Chinese leader Xi Jinping, and last year's victor, noted Twitter user Donald Trump, a movement defined by a hashtag has emerged as Time Magazine's 2017 Person of the 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".

Time's 2017 Person of the Year is The Silence Breakers, what the magazine refers to as "the individuals who set off a national reckoning over the prevalence of sexual harassment".

Trump claimed last month that the magazine told him he was the likely victor for the second consecutive year, which Time later disputed.

Weinstein has repeatedly denied any allegations of "nonconsensual sex".

Weinstein has denied via his lawyers and spokespeople that he engaged in any non-consensual behavior.

The women's photographs were taken in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The latter, USA Today reported, represents women who have yet to come forward with their stories.

Numerous women have spoken out publicly since October about sexual misconduct by dozens of high-profile men in entertainment, media, business and sports.

"Its was especially hard this year, a year of so much disruption in the United States in around the world", said Felsenthal.

Felsenthal said that the "galvanizing actions" of women and many men speaking out has "unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s".

The Time cover features five women, including Fowler, Swift and the actor Ashley Judd, who accused Weinstein of misconduct.

TIME in its article says, " The hashtag #MeToo (swiftly adapted into #BalanceTonPorc, #YoTambien, #Ana_kaman and many others), which to date has provided an umbrella of solidarity for millions of people to come forward with their stories, is part of the picture, but not all of it.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who won the Time honor in 2015 at the height of the refugee influx into her country, paid tribute to the "Silence Breakers".

How does Time choose its Person of the Year?

"We must thank them for their courage in breaking the silence about sexual assault and for the global discussion they sparked", she said, according to her spokesman Steffen Seibert on Twitter.
