Global star Priyanka Chopra is lending support to the Time’s Up initiative that was launched on New Year’s Day to battle sexual harassment in workplaces and to fight for gender equality.
This year, at the 75th Golden Globes Awards, the colour black was chosen as a way for the movie and TV industry to make a statement against a pervasive culture of misconduct.
The 35-year-old took to social media to share a picture of herself wearing black and wrote alongside, “Today we wear black. Wher ever you are, whoever you are, whatever you’re doing…join us #TimesUp #WhyWeWearBlack”
The Time’s Up campaign is a coalition of 300 Hollywood women-actors, directors, producers, writers, agents, and entertainment executives-who have also established a $13 million legal defence fund to provide support for women and men who have experienced sexual harassment or abuse in the workplace.
