"It's a moment to transform both the written and unwritten rules that devalue the lives and experiences of women".

"Tarana has been working with [Time's Up] a long time, and encouraged the group to bring in other activists working in other sectors", Jayaraman, a restaurant industry activist, told The Hollywood Reporter.

Meryl Streep brought National Domestic Workers Alliance Director Ai-jen Poo as her guest and in a red carpet interview she talked about how women were standing up about sexual abuse and inequalities in the workplace. Streep was just as gracious to Clarkson, greeting her with an affectionate hug and kiss on the cheek, holding her hand as they chat for a few moments on the carpet.

The Time's Up sexual harassment prevention initiative launched January 1 by Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and other prominent Hollywood women includes, among other things, a legal defense fund for victims, legislative initiatives and a request that women wear black to the Golden Globes.

She said: "There's something about women in Hollywood speaking out". The full list of activists, as well as their full statement, is below.

We're not going to ban Donald Trump
Though, they did say they are "working to make Twitter the best place to see and freely discuss everything that matters", so there's that.

A number of these activists represent women outside of the entertainment industry, in areas where the type of abuse Time's Up aims to eradicate is as deeply entrenched as is Hollywood.

Too much of the recent press attention has been focused on perpetrators and does not adequately address the systematic nature of violence including the importance of race, ethnicity and economic status in sexual violence and other forms of violence against women. The actress is up for a Golden Globe for her portrayal of King, an early advocate for women's equality. Each of us will be highlighting legislative, community-level and interpersonal solutions that contribute to ending violence against women in all our communities.

"We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work". It's in Congress. It's everywhere, and we want to fix that.
