Time Person of the Year 2017: The Silence Breakers

cropped left quote

“Discussions of sexual harassment in polite company tend to rely on euphemisms: harassment becomes “inappropriate behavior,” assault becomes “misconduct,” rape becomes “abuse.” We’re accustomed to hearing those softened words, which downplay the pain of the experience.”

 

~Time Magazine writers Stephanie Zacharek, Eliana Dockterman and Haley Sweetland Edwards
