Charlotte Alter, Time’s national correspondent explained how it is the elbow of a hospital worker who came to the publication about her story of sexual abuse but doesn’t wish to identify herself in publicly. Within the issue, the women who have come forward with their respective experiences of abuse are photographed with their faces turned away from the camera.

From A-list stars to your most everyday person, Time documents how sexual abuse is common and is not just a Hollywood issue. It is also not so easy to battle the stigma that victims have to face. Charlotte said, “It’s important to include people who have to stay anonymous for professional reasons, who don’t have the resources to weather what would happen if they lost their job or they couldn’t support their families. So we wanted to include people where, to really reference the risk that these women are taking by speaking out about this.”[Refinery29]
