Over 300 famous actresses, directors and producers in Hollywood are fighting sexual harassment. They started a movement called 'Time's Up'. They are angry about inequality and the harassment of working-class women. They published a letter. It said: "The struggle for women…rise up the ranks and to simply be heard and acknowledged in male-dominated workplaces must end". It added that "time's up" for men controlling everything.

The Time's Up movement started after many actresses reported that a movie producer had sexually harassed them. Its leaders asked actresses to wear black clothes on the red carpet at an awards ceremony. This is to speak out against sexual inequality. An actress said awards shows are better because of women's clothes, "beautiful faces" and glamour. She said women should not dress up for a Hollywood industry that is unequal.
