Hollywood Powerhouses Form All-Female Group to Combat Sexual Harassment

Time’s Up has thus far established a $13 million legal defense fund, housed by the National Women’s Law Center, to help working class women protect themselves from the fallout of reporting sexual harassment or abuse in their workplaces, and hopes to pursue legislation that would penalize companies that fail to take action against employees or employers repeatedly accused of harassment. The group is also pushing gender pay parity at movie and television studios, and is encouraging women in Hollywood to participate in the upcoming Golden Globes protest by wearing black to call attention to gender and racial inequality in the industry.
