Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria have spoken out, and are organizing a march on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday, January 7, which will be aired on E! Other prominent stars are also planning to join the two actresses to show their solidarity for the Time’s Up movement, a “legal defense fund” that aims to “provide support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace.”
This positive initiative was announced on New Year’s Day and so far, already more than 300 women in the entertainment industry have got on board. “The clock has run out on sexual assault, harassment and inequality in the workplace. It’s time to do something about it,” a message on the website reads.
“We have been siloed off from each other,” Witherspoon told The New York Times. “We’re finally hearing each other, and seeing each other, and now locking arms in solidarity with each other, and in solidarity for every woman who doesn’t feel seen, to be finally heard.”
It has also been reported, that women presenters and nominees will also be dressed in all-black gowns, featuring a Time’s Up pin, as a silent protest against the misconduct allegations that have hit Hollywood hard recently.
Go Reece and Eva, and go girl power!
