TIME magazine has announced the winner of their annual “Person of the Year” award, and this year, it’s going to a group – not an individual.

“The Silence Breakers” have received the 2017 Person of the Year award, in recognition of women (and some men) who have come forward to report accounts of sexual harassment, prompting the start of the hashtag #MeToo.

Ashley Judd is recognized for speaking out against film producer Harvey Weinstein, along with Rose McGowan and several other high-profile accusers who have spoken out against sexual harassment and abuse. Megyn Kelly is also featured as one of the Silence Breakers.

Although President Donald Trump said he wasn’t interested in being named for the award, he was given the first runner-up spot on the list. TIME said the rationale behind this is that “he has changed the very nature of the presidency and the way the White House works.”

President Trump tweeted last month, “Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named ‘Man (Person) of the Year,’ like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”

Second runner-up is Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Third runner-up is Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Fourth runner-up is North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un.

Fifth runner-up is former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.
