This week's #FollowFriday is all about women behind the scenes of the #TimesUp movement. The all black moment of solidarity at the Golden Globes was just one piece of the puzzle. Time's Up is a leaderless initiative made up of many working groups to fight against sexual harassment.
According to the New York Times, the movement will address:
• 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.
Check out these women moving the movement and the groups they're leading down below. Don't forget to show some social media love for #FollowFriday!
