Women in Hollywood are rallying together to tell the world that Time’s Up. Time’s up on sexual harassment in the workplace. It’s time for men to be held accountable for their actions. About 300 of Hollywood actresses and female agents, writers, directors, producers and entertainment executives have formed this initiative to fight sexual harassment in Hollywood and other industries nationwide.

The Campaign Women in Hollywood are Rallying Behind

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.

According to the campaign’s website, “TIME’S UP is a unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere. From movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike, we envision nationwide leadership that reflects the world in which we live.”

So many of my friends and loved ones have already supported the cause. It’s a significant step for all women out there. Please help the cause by donating to Time’s Up Now.

Empowered women empower women, ladies! Let’s do it by raising money for this incredible campaign.
