For the past 90 years, Time Magazine has annually unveiled a Person of the Year cover, celebrating an influential figure from the last 12 months. In 2017, though, a group known as the Silence Breakers was selected, as its members had sparked the rapidly growing Me Too movement. However, one small detail on that cover proved all-important.

In October 2017, a campaign was launched following the very public allegations of sexual harassment against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Actor Ashley Judd was the first woman to go on record about the subject, recalling her experience with Weinstein from back in 1997 to The New York Times. However, few could have predicted what happened next.
