“The Silence Breakers,” a group of women leading the stands of a global movement by sharing their individual stories of sexual harassment and abuse were revealed Wednesday to be Time magazine’s Person of the Year. The announcement has made its way to mainstream media as many industries and power centers all over the world are still shocked by groundbreaking exploitations regarding sexual harassment and abuse. These accusations came out in the reports about the film Harvey Weinstein in October.

As the image of Time’s cover spread across the internet, Weinstein has been faced with a severe lawsuit on Wednesday from six women and a separate group of female US legislators who are publicly demanding Senator Al Franken resign due to accusations that he groped constituents and co-workers. A student from Hamilton High School, Shanti Shenoy (12), commented on the situation stating that it “is a serious matter. It’s good that these authority figures are being exposed because it shows that these predators can truly be anyone.”

Time said it was dedicating the award not just to the women who evoked the #MeToo movement on social media, but also to the many people out there who’s now outspoken experiences have driven the devastating culture to its current breaking point. Another student, Chris Lee (12), made his remark saying “situations such as this have been going on for way too long and it’s about time all these unspoken stories come out. Just because you are rich, popular, and liked by the public doesn’t mean these type of actions can go unnoticed.”

Although there are a majority of people siding with the #metoo movement, many believe it will only cause people to overestimate circumstances and make anything into a “#metoo” statement. An anonymous student had an interesting comment in particular: “if people are going to say they’re stories and categorize it into the #metoo, I just hope it’s legit. We never know, many of these accusations could be false and that isn’t right either.” As the controversy continues, the movement only gets bigger.
