Shonda Rhimes, Tracee Ellis Ross And More Join ‘Time’s Up’ Calling For Change From Women In Entertainment For Women Everywhere

By Posted on 63 2 m read

The time to be silent is no more. In the wake of the exposure of many Hollywood directors, actors, producers and more being outed as sexual predators, women have joined forces, offering suppoort for victims of sexual assault as well as aiming to end the problem. The Times Up campaign advocates for women beyond the entertainment industry, fighting against sexual assault and trauma in all industries.

Time’s Up, a unified movement, calls for change, advocating for equality and safe work environments in all industries from movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike.  Founded and powered by women, Time’s Up focuses on “leading advocates for equality and safety to improve laws, employment agreements, and corporate policies; help change the face of corporate boardrooms and the C-suite; and enable more women and men to access our legal system to hold wrongdoers accountable.”

Many movements faced with the challenge of defending women often fail to include women that are underrepresented.  Time’s Up centralizes the notion that all women are due justice in times of need and recognizes that this is not a Hollywood only issue.  Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund will serve as a source for women with lower incomes to obtain financial resources for legal defense.

Top names in Hollywood have worked closely with Time’s Up and signed a letter in solidarity including Shonda Rhimes,  Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman, America Ferrera, Rashida Jones and Reese Witherspoon.

“We’re a bunch of women used to getting stuff done and we’re getting stuff done” says Rhimes.

    One thing is always that one of the most typical incentives for applying your credit card is a cash-back as well as rebate provision. Generally, you’ll get 1-5% back on various purchases. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1% again on most acquisitions, and 5% again on buying made using convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores along with ‘member merchants’.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
