Time has decided that a group of people -- mostly women but with some notable men -- known as “The Silence Breakers” — the embodiment of the #MeToo movement are their person of the year. Time wrote up about the women and interviewed everyone from celebrities to maids in hotels about their experiences — and the experiences of those still silent. Vale Genta — an actress who has appeared in Guilty Party and Royal Crush — was there to discuss, along with our regular hosts — Shira Lazar and Ryan Mitchell.
The group goes into the cover — praising its incredible work putting the #MeToo issue to the forefront, but criticizing the placing of Taylor Swift — who successfully counter-sued David Mueller — a DJ who groped her during a photo shoot — for one dollar — onto the cover. They damn Taylor Swift’s public silence on the issue and the apolitical nature of her work, and wonder why someone like Terry Crews — who represents male assault victims coming forward — could not have been on the cover. However, regardless of this the roundtable agrees — this is an excellent thing and a wonderful spotlight.
