Panel Discussion #MeToo and #TimesUp

Harnish brings up the Teen Vogue article where interviewed 54 women at the festival this year and they all stated they had been sexually harassed or assaulted during the festival. Papisova states in her article that in the 10 hours she was in attendance she was groped 22 times. The stories described many predatory behaviors.  Harnish states that men must be a positive force in this change as well.

Berman discusses production a film, Nanny Diaries with Harvey Weinstein. She discusses that she was one of the few female directors for production. She states that it was a horrific experience. She is tortured by the thoughts of what may have happened to her crew and actors on set. She really now questions and tries to remember has she missed something.  The #TimesUp legal fund is for all sexual assault and harassed victims. This fund in a few months has raised over 26 million dollars.

Dowd brings up the fact that this is a revolutionary change. Women and many human beings will lead the way to perpetuate this systemic change. We need to empower with the stories that are being told. This needs to change on many levels. He believes that this is our time and that the time is up.

Lesley Wexler, a Law professor at the University of Illinois, asks, “I am wondering about the thoughts you have for sort of accountability and reckoning with the past as you look forward and make all these efforts to be more inclusive the future?” Nava replies, “It is something we are grappling with at the Academy it is very very difficult issue it is a very very difficult issue to deal with.”

Conversations Around #MeToo and #TimesUp

Jennifer Robbennolt, Colleen Murphy, and Lesley Wexler argue that “reformers of the burgeoning #MeToo movement ought to heed the core principles of restorative and transitional justice and take into account the needs of both victims and offenders, as well as the larger community.”

Diane Warren, a collaborator on Til It Happens to You states, “this song became something more than ever expected. Listening to the stories of these victims compelled me to write the song. I want this song to be an inspiration to all going through a difficult time.” at The Creative Arts Emmys. This song has carried this message to many sexual assault victims and many more.

Ashley Judd, Annabella Sciorra, and Salma Hayek spoke to the effects ushered in by the producer’s downfall. “The changes we’re witnessing are driven by the powerful sound of new voices, of different voices, of our voices joining together in a mighty chorus that is finally saying time’s up,” Judd added.

The statistics, “Every 98 seconds, an American (this is not just a woman issue) is sexually assaulted. And every 8 minutes, that victim is a child. Meanwhile, only 6 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison.” (RANN)

The red carpet became a real black tie affair.  The black theme did not mean a void of personal style. Many celebrities choose textures, trims, makeup, and jewels to carry out their styling.  Jessica Biel wore a beautiful haute couture Dior gown with a half-moon over a tulle draping with a soft romantic pink slightly showing through.

DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.  She offers encouragement for the future by stating, ” it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.” Oprah brought many to tears with her speech supporting the night’s voice against sexual harassment.

Barabara Meirer states, “A lot of women will wear black tonight to support the Time‘s Up movement. I think this is a great and extremely important initiative! Nevertheless, I decided to wear a colorful dress tonight,” she wrote. “If we want this to be the Golden Globes of the strong women who stand up for their rights, I think, it’s the wrong way not to wear any sexy clothes anymore or let people take away our joy of showing our personality through fashion.” Fashion made a statement this evening and for generations to come. Support was felt in fashion, speeches, and pins throughout the evening. See the full evening photos here.
