Women are breaking their silence about sexual harassment and it’s about time!
Recognizing the #MeToo impact on society, Time magazine has chosen “The Silence Breakers” as its 2017 Person of the Year.
It is a perfect rebuke to last year’s Person of the Year, our current Predator-in-Chief Donald J. Trump the very poster boy for sexual abuse.
I Hate Losers
Oh karma how sweet you are!
In a sweet bit of irony, Donald Trump has again lost the popular vote to the power of women.
As the #sad runner-up, i.e. #loser for the coveted Time title, Trump can take comfort in the fact that he did make this years’ Time magazine Person of the Year issue after all. Our pussy grabbing President is mentioned 8 times in the issue as being a sexual predator.
PussyGate, PussyGate, I Love You…..
In fact, we owe a tip of the hat to Trump for this MeToo Momentum. Many consider Trump as the driver of this enormously successful movement which has seen millions of women come forward with long-buried stories of sexual harassment and abuse.
Now we are vocal, we are being heard and will no longer take a back seat in any conversation.
That Trump could utter his infamously vulgar remark dripping with entitlement about grabbing women’s pussy’s and still be elected President “is part of what started the rage that fired up the Woman March,” held the day after his inauguration, Time wrote. That arrogance launched a million pink pussy caps.
That was the beginning and it has accelerated beyond anyone’s expectations.
Brave women of all incomes, ethnicities and occupations who have come forward this past year to shed light on the prevalence of sexual harassment and abuse are forcing a national reckoning that is long overdue.
If this year was the moment that courageous women came forward to give voice to their stories and be heard, then 2018 must be about implementing systemic changes as a result of their stories.
For those women who have yet to come forward and share their stories…we know you are there.
We will be here when you are ready. #MeToo
