Time Magazine Exposed For Discriminating Against the “Person of the Year,” the cover shot…seems to be missing the Face of The Person Of The Year?
By Robin Tyson
Nationwide – The Me Too Slogan a movement founded by, Tarana Burke, ten years ago, encouraged millions to speak out about sexual violence and harassment.
Time Magazine Is Under Fire
Time magazine is under fire for their latest “Person of the Year” issue which addresses the Me Too social movement. Surprisingly, the cover excludes Tarana Burke, a 44-year-old, black woman who actually started the movement.
It appears Time wanted to give more attention and credit to celebrity women who helped publicize the movement. The cover features actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, corporate lobbyist Adama Iwu, worker Isabel Pascual and former Uber engineer, Susan Fowler but again, the woman who started the slogan is missing.
Tarana Burke Launches Me Too
Burke, was interviewed by Ebony magazine earlier this year and revealed that she launched the Me Too slogan back in 2006 as a grassroots movement to aid sexual assault survivors in underprivileged communities.
