How to Support the Time’s Up Movement from a $12 Pin to a Celebrity Golden Globes Gown
The Golden Globe Awards’ red carpet blackout may be over, but the Time’s Up initiative is just beginning. Hollywood is continuing to champion the fight against sexual harassment in the entertainment industry and beyond.
Time’s Up — the organization founded by 300 figures in the entertainment industry like Meryl Streep, America Ferrera, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and more — announced Wednesday that the organization is partnering with Condé Nast and eBay to auction off a selection of the black gowns and tuxedos worn by celebrities on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes.
Between January 19 and January 26, shoppers can visit ebay.com/timesup to bid on pieces worn by stars like Gal Gadot, Tracee Ellis Ross, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, Hugh Jackman, Neil Patrick Harris and many more. All of the proceeds benefit the Legal Defense fund started through the Time’s Up platform, which helps victims of sexual harassment in the workplace connect with legal representation and offers them public relations assistance and legal council.
“We’re thrilled that actors and others in the entertainment industry are leading in this extraordinary way to end the scourge of workplace sexual harassment,” Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, which is administering the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, said in a release. “Each time they’ve stepped up they’ve inspired more attorneys to join the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund and more individuals to contribute.”
To donate to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, which will provide subsidized legal support to women and men in all industries who have experienced sexual harassment, assault or abuse in the workplace, visit its GoFundMe page. Learn more about Time’s Up, an organization of women in entertainment combating sexual harassment and inequality, on its website.
Besides bidding for one of the designer pieces worn at the Golden Globes, there are plenty of other ways you can still show your support for the biggest movement happening in Hollywood.
At the Time’s Up online merch shop, you can stock up on the same Time’s Up T-Shirts stars wore as they got ready for the Golden Globes, plus totes, notebooks, stickers and even a baby onesie. Or, to show your support on a daily basis, you can snag the small but powerful Time’s Up pin we saw many men and women also wear at the Globes, available on the website for $12. It will continue to be the most powerful accessory on the awards season red carpet circuit.
“This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment,” Eva Longoria told the New York Times earlier this month. “For years, we’ve sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This time the industry can’t expect us to go up and twirl around. That’s not what this moment is about.”
Men in Hollywood haven’t been excluded from the conversation either, with countless stars showing their support for #MeToo as well.
“This is something that a lot of people are coming together in unity and saying we do not stand for sexual harassment,” Chris Hemsworth told PEOPLE at the Golden Globes.
“We do not stand for inequality, and me personally, I’m a feminist. We stand for equality. I believe in equality regardless of gender, regardless of race, regardless of sexual orientation, regardless of political opinion,” he added. “I believe that we all need to come together in a very compassionate way, and say, ‘Okay. Let’s even things out and let’s give each other a chance and let’s listen to one another.’”
On CBS Sunday Morning earlier today, Oprah Winfrey hosted a discussion with some of those involved in starting the Times Up movement, in which they talked about gender inequality and speaking up about sexual harassment. Reese was one of those on the panel, alongside actresses Natalie Portman, America Ferrera and Tracee Ellis Ross, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy, producer Shonda Rhimes and attorney Nina Shaw.

Preview: Oprah Winfrey hosts panel on impact of Time’s Up campaign
Some of the most prominent women in Hollywood open up to Oprah Winfrey about the impact of the Time’s Up campaign on raising awareness of sexual harassment in the workplace, and what they’d like to see in the future, in a revealing discussion to be broadcast on CBS’ “Sunday Morning” January 14.
Actresses America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Tracee Ellis-Ross and Reese Witherspoon, producer Shonda Rhimes (“Scandal”), Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and attorney Nina Shaw gathered with Winfrey in Pasadena, California, earlier this week to talk about the efforts to bring change to how women are treated in the entertainment industry and around the world.
“There’s moments that you have to evaluate whether silence is going to be your only option,” says Witherspoon. “And certain times that was our only option. But now is not that time.”
Witherspoon talks about the fact that she was sexually assaulted by a director when she was just 16.
There is no playbook for these times, Winfrey notes, especially when it comes to how people should talk about the topic — or to each other.
“How do we as a society have a mature, nuanced conversation about how men and women should be relating to each other?” Winfrey asks. “Because there’s so many men and women now who are uncomfortable in their workplaces because of all that’s been uncovered and aren’t just really sure how to be. What do we say to them?”
“We’re humans. We’re all humans,” replied Portman. “And I think it’s treating people as fellow humans … it’s not because you have a daughter that you respect a woman, it’s not because you have a wife or a sister. It’s because we’re human beings, whether we’re related to a man or not. We deserve the same respect.”
Stars at the Golden Globe Awards this coming Sunday will be wearing a pin to show their support for the Times Up movement – Reese led the charge in getting this pin made. Reese was also instrumental in setting up the Times Up movement.
Time’s Up Pin: The Story Behind Golden Globes’ Timely Red-Carpet Accessory
To design the button, Reese Witherspoon tapped designer Arianne Phillips, who is now calling on the fashion industry to donate money to the Time’s Up fund, too.
The hottest accessory on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday will be the Time’s Up pin, expected to be worn by leading ladies and men alike to draw attention to the sexual harassment prevention initiative launched Monday by Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and other prominent Hollywood women.
Witherspoon asked costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips (Kingsman, Nocturnal Animals, W.E.) to design the pin during a private meeting last month at CAA where the Time’s Up initiative was hatched by studio heads, producers, agents and actresses who split into discussion groups to tackle different aspects of the issue.
“I was probably one of very few women there who would be considered below-the-line,” says Phillips, referring to her role as a costume designer; she also has worked on fashion projects with Prada, Mr. Porter and Jeremy Scott over the years, and with pop stars Madonna and Lenny Kravitz on their onstage wardrobe.
“Reese asked me to come to the actors’ group, and told me they were going to be wearing black and would I consider creating a pin for the nominees and male presenters. We were up against the holidays, but I said I could do it, and the first person I called was my partner-in-crime, [Los Angeles jewelry designer] Michael Schmidt.”
Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria to Walk 2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet Together
Women in Hollywood are preparing to make a statement at the 2018 Golden Globes.
As the countdown continues for the start of award season, two beloved actresses are teaming up for Sunday’s big show.
E! News has learned Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria will walk the red carpet together Sunday night in support of Time’s Up.
The movement launched on New Year’s Day aims to promote equality and safety in the workplace. The initiative also addresses legislation, corporate policy and hiring practices.
According to the New York Times, Time’s Up has also been urging women to wear black at the Golden Globes to use the red carpet as an opportunity to raise awareness about the initiative.
“This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment,” Eva shared with the publication. “For years, we’ve sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This time the industry can’t expect us to go up and twirl around. That’s not what this moment is about.”
Jennifer Aniston, Shonda Rhimes, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Rashida Jones are just some of the many Hollywood stars also supporting the initiative in various ways.
The Blast was first to report Eva and Reese’s red carpet news.

Powerful Hollywood Women Unveil Anti-Harassment Action Plan
Driven by outrage and a resolve to correct a power imbalance that seemed intractable just months ago, 300 prominent actresses and female agents, writers, directors, producers and entertainment executives have formed an ambitious, sprawling initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in Hollywood and in blue-collar workplaces nationwide.
The initiative includes:
— 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.
— And a request that women walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes speak out and raise awareness by wearing black.

Reese Witherspoon, Ted Sarandos Co-Hosting Fundraiser for Gavin Newsom
Several of Hollywood’s politically minded elites will pay up to $29,200 apiece to gather Friday at the Pacific Palisades home of Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth to raise funds for Gavin Newsom’s campaign in his run for governor of California.
Beyond Witherspoon and Toth, the evening’s event is being co-hosted by Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos and his wife, Nicole Avant, the former U.S. ambassador to the Bahamas.
Other co-hosts include TV producer Steven Bochco and his wife, Dayna; Phoenix Pictures CEO Mike Medavoy and his wife, Irena; TV producer Ryan Murphy and his husband, David Miller; and ICM founding partner Chris Silbermann and his TV producer wife, Julia Franz.
The minimum “suggested contribution” to attend the gathering, according to the invitation, is $1,000, though $5,000 gets you a “co-host photo reception.” A “VIP clutch” goes for $10,000, and $29,200 is the “primary maximum” by law.
Newsom, a Democrat, is California’s lieutenant governor and was mayor of San Francisco from 2004-2010. He was an early advocate for the legalization of marijuana and same-sex marriage and is a vociferous critic of President Donald Trump.
The politician hosted The Gavin Newsom Show on Al Gore’s now-defunct Current TV and is married to Jennifer Siebel Newsom, an actress who produced the feminist-themed documentary movies Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In.

Comments Off on Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon and More Pass the Ball to Support Women’s Soccer
Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Zendaya and More Pass the Ball to Support Women’s Soccer
“What are you going to #PassTheBall for?”
That’s the question Julia Roberts asks in a fun PSA supporting the National Women’s Soccer League. Lifetime has teamed up with an all-star celebrity lineup including the mother of three, Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon, James Corden, Zendaya and David Beckham for the special campaign.
“By passing the ball, you will help get the word out about these amazing athletes and the game they love,” Roberts says in the video.
For the Oscar winner, soccer is close to her heart: her daughter and two sons all play the sport. “On weekends we usually hit about four games on Saturday and sometimes one on Sunday,” she shares exclusively with PEOPLE. “It’s thrilling to see a whole group of kids grow up.”
As for life as a soccer mom, Roberts calls it “a total commitment.” “It has to be a family commitment for sure,” she adds. “It’s wonderful to be outside watching kids play the game they love — watching them grow from little kids playing on half a field to young men and women playing their hearts out.”
Asked why it’s especially empowering see girls kick the ball alongside her daughter, Roberts says, “I remember growing up my brother played soccer in high school and we had a had soccer team, but I didn’t know any girls who played soccer back in ye olden days.
“So it’s great to see everybody have an opportunity to participate in what is in our house our favorite sport.”
