We are back in the office today after having a lovely time over Christmas with family, friends and loved ones and what better way to start the new year than with this new strong, powerful campaign…

Emma Stone and Natalie Portman are just two of hundreds of leading Hollywood women backing a new campaign to tackle sexual harassment.

Aiming to address the systemic inequality and injustice in the workplace that have kept underrepresented groups from reaching their full potential, this campaign follows on from the #MeToo movement, which encouraged victims to speak out in the wake of the Weinstein scandal.

Stone and Portman join other notable names including: Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, Meryl Streep and Shonda Rhimes, the executive producer behind popular television series Grey’s Anatomy.

To mark the launch of the campaign, the group published an open letter on a full page advert in The New York Times and Spanish-language newspaper LA Opinion to the letter is a response to 700,000 farm workers who penned their own letter of solidarity in November.

Time’s Up will advocate for legislation to tackle workplace harassment across the US and is also backing a movement for women to wear black at this Sunday’s Golden Globes, in solidarity with those who have been harassed.
