#MeToo #TimesUp

One of the biggest movements in regard to speaking out in recent months was Times Up. It has continued to be a massive topic and has sparked many conversations surrounding the importance of speaking out. Following the #MeToo campaign, three hundred female Hollywood actors, agents, writers, directors, producers and entertainment executives have come together to counter systematic sexual harassment in the entertainment business and US workplaces.

The initiative, announced with a full-page ad in the New York Times. It includes a $19 million legal defence fund to help women in less privileged professions protect themselves from sexual misconduct and the consequences that may arise from reporting it. The TimesUp campaign held a massive presence at the 2018 Golden Globes. Usually a colourful event, the majority of the attendees chose to wear black to support the TimesUp campaign. Many of the actresses attending also chose to invite women’s rights activists as their plus ones. The majority of the male attendees also wore black and wore “Times Up” lapel pins on their suits.
