Women Unifying Across Sectors call ‘Time’s Up’ on sexual harassment
In the last few months, issues such as sexual harassment have entered the public / media consciousness in unprecedented ways. Women have said #MeToo and called Time’s Up on abuse.
As women activists have joined with women from the entertainment industry, we have also witnessed and experienced new spaces of solidarity and connection. We have come together to share experiences, ideas and platforms. We have reflected, reimagined and organised. From meetings in women’s organisations to walking together on red carpets, we have sought to build bridges across sectors and locations.
On Sunday February 19th, 2018, 2 letters of unity were published in the Observer. One was from women working in the entertainment industry and the other from women working to address violence against women and girls. Although we had only a short window in which women could sign, we received overwhelming support from nearly 200 women. However, we know that many others want to add their names as a way of expressing their solidarity and commitment. We also know that, due to administrative errors, some names were missed off the original list (which was published in the Observer). As we want to honour all the women that wish to be included, we are publishing the list on this website. We will be updating the list regularly.
If you would like your name added to the activist letter, please email email@example.com with MeToo in the subject line. You don’t have to work for an organisation - but if you don’t, it would be helpful if you indicate whether you are an activist etc. Please let us know if you want your organisation’s name included.
