The women behind Hollywood’s Time’s Up movement held their first-ever event during the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday.
Amber Tamblyn, Marisa Tomei, Julianne Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashley Judd and more hosted a live conversation about the “unspoken” and “pivotal role” women have in raising awareness about workplace inequality.
The festival’s organizers wanted to put on a “compelling” chat among filmmakers, activists, lawyers and more who have chosen to speak out about issues within the entertainment industry and beyond.
“The day will explore how we got here, the women who came before us to make this work possible, and what’s next for Time’s Up,” according to a release.
The event was held April 28 at 11 a.m. in the festival’s main Spring Studios hub (50 Varick St.). Net proceeds from the day go toward the Time’s Up legal defense fund, gofundme.com/timesup, which has raised more than $21 million to date.
The Time’s Up movement made its debut in a New York Times advertisement on Jan. 1, stemming from the #MeToo sexual misconduct allegations involving disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. It was backed by hundreds of A-list celebrities, such as America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Shonda Rhimes and Reese Witherspoon. The group aims to raise awareness of misconduct, provide a legal defense fund for victims and has organized social movements such as the Golden Globes red carpet blackout.
