Time Magazine: Select people of the #MeToo Movement as Person of the Year for 2017

The powerful women and men who have made the courageous decision to come forward with their experiences of sexual harassment and sexual assault at the hands of men deserve to be Time’s 2017 Person of the Year.
Their bravery has raised a new level of awareness concerning the darkest consequences of the misogeny in which we live.
Their courageous decision to come forward flies in the face of the fearful consequences of standing up and speaking out. There is a myth that women make up accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault to destroy the life of the accused man. This false perception prevents many women from coming forward... Survivors worry that they won't be believed.
The truth is, women who come forward are exhibiting a tremendous amount of courage in the face of real fears: Fear of a destroyed career, fear of financial instability, fear of their children being taken away or killed by the abuser. Fear they will be alone forever if they leave. Fear of retribution and revenge by co-workers, fear of being perceived as weak and vulnerable, fear of being considered unreasonable or irrational (crazy), fear of being considered ‘opportunistic,’ fear of losing relationships with family member or friends, fear of believing it wouldn’t lead to a conviction (only 6 out of 1,000 cases of reported sexual assault lead to conviction), fear that the perpetrator will get in too much trouble, fear of being considered “damaged goods.”
Time Magazine, do the right thing and honor the courageous voices of the sexually assaulted and sexually harassed women and men of the #MeToo movement with the 2017 Person of the Year award.
