Ashley Judd is among the 'silence breakers' named Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Time magazine kicked off the morning with a surprising announcement that its anticipated “Person of the Year” would not be just one person. 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.
Since those profiled in the article made mention of President Donald Trump as directly or indirectly part of the issue with sexual harassment, some responding to the announcement mocked the commander in chief as they celebrated the “silence breakers.”
Donald Trump made it into Time’s Person of the Year issue after all: As one of the accused.
Trump isn’t Person of the Year, but TIME’s piece on The Silence Breakers calls Trump a ‘precipitating factor’ in the #metoo movement. “In this case, you had Harvey Weinstein, and before that you had Trump.” https://t.co/fYaJLcTgq6
