What's the #TimesUp Movement?

And what a-list celebrities are supporting it!

January 2, 2018

The #MeToo Movement took over social media this past Fall and caused a lot of uproar and change in Hollywood and the big media. It created an uprising of women and men that would no longer stay silent and instead report those that had sexually assaulted or harassed them.

We saw many big names fall like Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, and Kevin Spacey. But what about the regular people of the World who don't have millions in the bank and a legal team behind them? That's where this new movement, #TimesUp come into play!

Reese Whitherspoon, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, and Shonda Rhimes are just a few of the big names donating to the cause to raise $13 million for a legal fund to help "less privileged woman" who have been victimized at work. 

More and more celebrities have been donating to the fund as well. And many are men making their contribution to help those who otherwise wouldn't feel impowered because of their lack of funds. 

I think this movement will help change the landscape in the worplace for everyone in 2018!
