Logo for the Hill

Major players in the entertainment industry made a statement at the 2018 Golden Globes by wearing black, calling out sexual violence in acceptance speeches, and boasting pins emblazened with "Time's Up," an initiative in Hollywood that aims to bring resources and attention to sexual violence in blue collar workplaces. BARCC Executive Director Gina Scaramella wrote in the Hill that the event marked how far we've come in listening to survivors of sexual assault, but also demonstrated how much further we have to go. 

Excerpt: "It remains to be seen what will happen in Hollywood. While the Golden Globes proved to be an inspiring kickoff to Time’s Up, less scripted moments revealed how far Hollywood culture needs to go."
