AT last night’s Golden Globes women with voices stood up and were counted.
Action, through TIME’S UP is much delayed but thank heavens it’s happened now. I’m guilty of a lack of commitment to progress and change, myself. I knew about unemployment in the north east for 25 years. I’ve dealt with snide sexual comments and vulgar come-ons for years without making much fuss. Brexit and serious sexual harassment are the results of this sort of uncaring ignorance.
Time’s Up is an initiative and legal defence movement to support women in various industries dealing with sexual harassment. It was launched with an open letter signed by hundreds of Hollywood women and published January 1. Meryl Streep, Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Ava DuVernay, America Ferrera,and Lena Waithe are among the founders, and still more stars publicly lent their support to Time’s Up following its announcement.
Let’s hope more of us will be encouraged to stake claims and speak up for equality.
They did still look absolutely gorgeous, though, don’t you think?
