Great to see Time recognize the women who had the courage to step forward and identify those who harassed or abused them sexually. Their actions have essentially created a reset in a male-dominated society that permitted this harassment and abuse. It's a shame there are still some who are getting away with such actions such as our own president and a senatorial candidate in AL.

Salute! These women can do much to help others who are still unable to step out and say “Enough”.

Two women in my family have been through the violence of this disease. I know firsthand their dilemma. My wife and I rescued them from the abuse.
