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.
The clock’s been ticking on the abuse of power. I stand in solidarity with women across every industry to say #TIMESUP on abuse, harassment, and assault. #TIMESUP on oppression and marginalization. #TIMESUP on misrepresentation and underrepresentation. Sign the solidarity letter and donate to the @TIMESUPNOW Legal Defense Fund: Link in bio.
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.
