Earlier movement "#metoo" which was initiated last year and was successfull enough to expose the world of sexual harassment at workplace and also unmasked big name like, Harvey Weinstein. The lead program is set to counter Sexual Harassment and a Prevention Initiative called by the title," Time's Up". 


The thought initiated with the decision to wear black, to the coming  Golden Globes Night as a solidarity towards the victims of sexual harassment.  Shonda Rhimes and Reese Witherspoon are among the key players in the effort, which includes a legal defence fund to help women in blue-collar industries. More than three hundred pre-eminent Hollywoodies including Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Ashley Judd, America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington, Jill Soloway and Donna Langley have launched an initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in the workplace with the theme to follow title," Time's Up".
