There’s A New Movement Called “Times Up.”

Watch out “old” Hollywood, because the “new” Hollywood is coming for you!

The women of Hollywood have started a movement. It’s called “Times Up.”

Times Up is an Anti-harassment Action Plan with multiple women stepping forward to donate, volunteer, organize and anything else that needs to be done to stop sexual harassment, not just in Hollywood but across the nation.

Several women came together in October to address the needs after the “Me Too” messages were heard loud and clear. They didn’t get together to whine or complain but to take action.

The group is divided into subdivisions to get more done, such as a defense fund, creating legislation, and more as the need arises.

According to Red T Raccoon, the goal of the group is threefold:

  1. A legal defense fund for less privileged populations who suffer workplace sexual harassment
  2. Legislation to stop a corporate atmosphere of harassment & ending NDA usage to silence victims
  3. Gender parity in the entertainment industry

300 prominent actresses, female agents, writers, directors, producers and entertainment executives came together to fight a problem that has been swept under the rugs for decades.

According to Shonda Rimes, Write and Producer of several major, successful tv shows, “We must fight for women who don’t have as much power or privilege as do the women of Hollywood. We want to make sure women in all types of jobs are able to come forward to prosecute their harassers.”

Thus a fund was started with $13 million, all donated by women of Hollywood. And the group is kicking off the movement by asking everyone attending the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night to wear black and speak out for awareness.

“We realize the movement isn’t going to change everything overnight, said actress America Ferrara, “but not taking action is no longer an option.”
