Cate Blanchett is among the powerful hollywood women supporting the anti-harassment action plan announced last Monday called Time’s Up.
The project targets on actions to fight sexual assaults, harassment and inequality in the workplace.
The initiative includes:
— A legal defense fund, backed by $13 million in donations, to help less privileged women — like janitors, nurses and workers at farms, factories, restaurants and hotels — protect themselves from sexual misconduct and the fallout from reporting it.
— Legislation to penalize companies that tolerate persistent harassment, and to discourage the use of nondisclosure agreements to silence victims.
— A drive to reach gender parity at studios and talent agencies that has already begun making headway.
— And a request that women walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes speak out and raise awareness by wearing black.
As the official site of Time’s Up describe, this action plan is a unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere.
The campaign also is collecting donations for the Time’s Up legal defense fund that will provide subsidized legal support to women and men who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace and while in pursuit of their careers.
