Time's Up is a leaderless social movement founded in response to the string of sexual harassment allegations on Hollywood, the Weinstein effect and #MeToo. The movement provides a set of intiatives to combat sexual harassment and support those fighting systematic inequality.
On November 10th, 2017, the Latina farmworkers Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, some 700,000 women, published a letter of solidarity in Time magazine. The letter detailed the similar struggles of the two industries in their fights against sexual discrimination, abuse and harassment. They write:
"Even though we work in very different environments, we share a common experience of being preyed upon by individuals who have the power to hire, fire, blacklist and otherwise threaten our economic, physical and emotional security. Like you, there are few positions available to us and reporting any kind of harm or injustice committed against us doesn’t seem like a viable option. Complaining about anything -- even sexual harassment -- seems unthinkable because too much is at risk, including the ability to feed our families and preserve our reputations.
On January 1st, 2018, Time's Up declared itself in the New York Times, taking out a full-page ad in the publication and publishing a letter of support with Alianza Nacional de Campesinas. Additionally, the letter indicated that they would be setting up a legal defense fun to support lower-income women seeking justice, advocating for legislation to punish organization that allow frequent sexual harassment allegations and move toward gender parity in studios and talent agencies.
The activists involved in Time's Up includes actresses Reese Witherspoon, America Ferrera, Eva Longoria, Meryl Streep, director Ava DuVernay, producer Shonda Rhimes and more.
In solidarity with the Time's Up movement, those attending the 2018 Golden Globes were encouraged to wear black and speak about issues involving sexual harassment in their speeches and on the red carpet.
Several media outlets published articles about Time's Up, including Vox, EW, Vanity Fair and more.
The Weinstein Effect refers to a deluge of sexual harassment and assault allegations levied towards many Hollywood celebrities and political figures, triggered by Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations.
#MeToo is a hashtag campaign that circulated on Twitter and other social media platforms in which actress Alyssa Milano encouraged survivors of sexual assault and harassment to post "#MeToo" or "Me Too" to raise awareness and highlight its commonality.
