This year marks the one year anniversary of Time’s Up, an initiative that was launched at a critical time in Hollywood and beyond where women declared it was not safe at work and a call for change was in order. During last year’s Golden Globes, actresses and actors walked the red carpet donned Time’s Up pins in solidarity with the cause. On Sunday during the Globes red carpet, many can expect the message of Time’s Up to continue with ribbons and bracelets to symbolize that we are all tied together in our joint commitment to create safe, fair and dignified workplaces for women of all kinds.
Oscar-nominated costume designer Arianne Phillip, who designed the logo, also created this year’s red carpet accessory which will serve as a visual representation of our new TIMESUPx2 campaign which champions the second year of the movement. In addition, it is a call to action to double the number of women of all kinds in leadership positions across all industries.
The black and white ribbons and bracelets will be available on the Time’s Up website on Sunday and the organization invites everyone to where the accessory in support of the movement.
Last year, along with the red carpet was also filled with black garments to support the #MeToo movement, which was initially launched by Tarana Burke in 2006. Last year’s Golden Globes also welcomed advocates and activists for gender and racial justice took the carpet including Burke, Marai Larasi, Ai-jen Poo, Mónica Ramírez, Calina Lawrence, Billie Jean King and Saru Jayaraman who joined actresses Michelle Williams, Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley Amy Poehler and Emma Stone on the red carpet.
Since its launch, the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund has connected nearly 4,000 women and men who have faced sexual assault, harassment or retaliation at work with legal and PR resources.
