Thanks to our friend Tamara Mellon for teaming up with @omazeworld to support the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund! Go to omaze.com/tamara for your chance to win a year’s worth of free @tamaramellon shoes AND a trip to join Tamara and @rashidajones for lunch. The best part? All proceeds support the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund which connects women and men who experience sexual misconduct including assault, harassment, abuse and related retaliation in the workplace with legal and public relations assistance.
When the top critics deciding which movies are "good" are overwhelmingly white and male, audiences aren't seeing the full picture. Last night, @brielarson used her acceptance speech at the @womeninfilmla to talk about the lack of diversity in film criticism... and to announce that the Sundance Film Festival and TIFF both have pledged to allocate 20 percent of their press credentials to underrepresented journalists. Thank you, @sundanceorg and @Tiff_net, for your leadership!
Today the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund launched a grant program that will help nonprofits fund education and outreach to prevent sexual misconduct. (Story by McClatchy, link to grant application page in bio)
