TIME chose 'The Silence Breakers' at the 2017 Person of the Year. In the story explaining their choice, TIME cited the election of President Trump as being partially responsible for the magazine's decision to highlight the women.

That Donald Trump could express himself that way and still be elected President is part of what stoked the rage that fueled the Women's March the day after his Inauguration. It's why women seized on that crude word as the emblem of the protest that dwarfed Trump's Inauguration crowd size. "All social movements have highly visible precipitating factors," says Aldon Morris, a professor of sociology at Northwestern University. "In this case, you had Harvey Weinstein, and before that you had Trump."

But others feel TIME got it wrong.

Some argued Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, should've been named by herself.

Others believe Taylor Swift shouldn't have been included.

And President Trump, after being named the 2016 Person of the Year and getting runner-up this year, had nothing nice to say about TIME's choice.
