Time’s Up Raises $20 Million To Combat Sexual Harassment

Time’s Up is a movement against sexual harassment founded on January 1, 2018 by Hollywood celebrities in response to the Weinstein reports and #MeToo movement. It’s mission is to combat sexual harassment, assault, and inequality in the workplace. Since the launch of Time’s Up, the organization has raised $20 million and has helped over 1,000 people. Tina Tchen, Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff who now administers the fund, made the announcement during a Time’s Up panel at the 2018 Makers Conference on Monday.

Actress Rashida Jones was on the panel and added, “There is no change unless you bring every single person along who has spent time being marginalized, harassed, [or] assaulted.”

Tchen said the movement is uniting whose voices too often are fragmented and siloed by interests.

“This is all about bringing everything together,” she said. “I have to give a lot of credit to the women of Hollywood who really brought this together, gave a voice to it.”

Golden Globes 2016

The Golden Globes aired last night and it was a night filled with many highlights for the winners and fashion on the red carpet. Taraji P. Henson won “Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Drama” for her role as Cookie on ABC’s “Empire” beating out Viola Davis, Robin Wright, Caltriona Balfe, and Eva Green. On her way up to take her acceptance speech, she passed out cookies. Her speech went over and when they tried to stop her she said, “”I’ve waited 20 years for this! You gon wait.” Taraji’s win at last night’s award show marks her first Golden Globe award.

Sylvester Stallone also won for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture award for his role in “Creed”. He paid tribute to his late son, Sage, wat the award show. His son died of heart disease at just 36 years old in 2012 – and he appeared alongside his dad in 1990’s Rocky V. “Wow, that’s a very heavy question,” Stallone said after his big win Sunday when reporters asked him about the loss’s impact on his work. “Any time you can do things that are real, I think it’s very, very helpful, and with my son, I want to respect his memory, and I think we did so.”

He was also very shocked having one stating, “I didn’t expect it all, and I don’t remember a standing ovation. I’m shocked, was there really? You’re kidding me. I have to get a Tivo,” he said. “I did not expect to win at all so, I made a promise to myself that I would be very aware the whole time – it proves I’m not aware. I got really caught up in emotion. Thank you very much. Just the mere fact that these incredible people applauding, it makes me realize that in life, it’s really never over ’til it’s over, and it indicates that people should never give up trying, so I think it was a very, very positive message for everybody.”

Ricky Gervais hosted this year’s Golden Globes awards.

The two women were expected to have both their first babies be girls.

The Kardashian family has become a spectacle in media with their family being famous for various things. Kim gained her fame as a model, actress, business woman, and reality television star. Her two sisters, Kourtney and Khloe followed her into various business ventures as well. Their brother Rob graduated from USC and recently launched a sock line. Their father was the legendary Robert Kardashian who served as the defense attorney during O.J. Simpson’s murder trial in 1995. Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003. Kris Jenner remarried Bruce Jenner, the gold medal winner for the decathalon in the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Kris and Bruce Jenner had two more children together, Kendall and Kylie. The entire family stars in Keeping Up with the Kardashians, an E! reality television series that follows the lives of the Kardashian/Jenner family. The series’ success led to the spin-offs Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe and Lamar, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
