Following the many sexual assault and harassment allegations that came to light in 2017, over 300 women in Hollywood have started an anti-harassment organization.
The organization, called TIME’s UP, is made up of actresses, film agents, writers and directors including Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria and Shonda Rhimes.
Created in October of last year, Time’s Up serves as a powerful response to the numerous settlements producer Harvey Weinstein reached after women accused him of sexual misconduct. Its mission is described as a “unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere. From movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike, we envision nationwide leadership that reflects the world in which we live.”
The New York Times reports that the members have been holding weekly meetings and hosting workshops. The organization will address the many sexual allegations made as well as help women to protect themselves from sexual misconduct.
