The #MeToo movement becomes a way for abuse victims to find the courage to speak. Although Time magazine editors decide who or what group won the Person of the Year title, but in the polls offered by the magazine, Saudi Crown Prince Prince Mohammed bin Salman received the highest votes. However, the inclusion of US singer Taylor Swift on the cover of the magazine caused controversy in social media.

But, before the harassment of a famous Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, rattled the world, Swift once reported a radio DJ who harassed her. The DJ was later dismissed, and sued Swift by demanding $ 3 million or Rp40.6 billion in damages. However, Swift won the lawsuit, and only demanded US $ 1 or Rp 13,500 as a symbol of a sesual harassment crime can never be replaced by money compensation.
