Time’s Up

Destiny Souze, Reporter

Time’s Up is a movement against sexual harassment. Founded this year (2018), the movement is in response to the Weinstein effect and the #MeToo hashtag. The history leading up to the movement included Alianza Nacional de Campesinas writing a letter of solidarity to the Hollywood women involved in exposing the sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein, a movement toward gender parity in studio and talent agencies, a $13-million legal defense fund, administered by the National Women’s Law Center, to support lower-income women seeking justice for sexual harassment and assault in the workplace, and the call for women on the red carpet at the 75th Golden Globe Awards to wear black and speak out about sexual harassment and assault.
