The growing number of women coming forward to hold their sexual abusers and harassers accountable is one of the biggest stories of 2017, which is why TIME Magazine named the Silence Breakers its Person of the Year.

In the past year, more than 100 women have told their stories of sexual abuse by Larry Nassar -- some on social media and others in court -- but as a group, Attorney David Mittleman says they were able to be heard and make a difference.

FOX 47's Christopher Lane tells us how the movement had an impact on victims here in Mid-Michigan long before it exploded nationally.
