The Silence Breakers are TIME's Person of the Year 2017

Time magazine named "The Silence Breakers" — women who triggered a #MeToo national outcry over sexual harassment — as the 2017 "Person of the Year."

The magazine said President Trump was runner-up for the top title, while Chinese President Xi Jinping was third on the list.

It was the 91st year that the magazine has recognized the person or group of people who most influenced the news curing the past year, for better or for worse.

The shortlist included Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the Dreamers,  Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who launched a national protest against racism and police brutality, special prosecutor Robert Mueller, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
