Statement by Melanie Sakoda of California, Volunteer Member of SNAP’s Board of Directors (925-708-6175, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Time Magazine today honored the women who have been speaking up about sexual abuse and harassment as its 2017 Person of the Year.
SNAP, the Survivors Network, commends Time Magazine for this recognition of the powerful #MeToo stories being posted by women across the country and around the world. Their voices are helping to make the world a safer place. As more and more women tell their truths, others will be inspired by their example to come forward, speak up, and get help. If the pressure continues, better avenues of reporting and employer/industry accountability will eventually be implemented.
