Over 300 women in Hollywood have joined to fight sexual harassment. They started a movement called 'Time's Up'. They don't want women to be treated unfairly. They are angry about inequality and the amount of harassment working-class women get. The women are famous actresses, agents, directors and producers. The group published a letter in newspapers. It said: "The struggle for women to break in, to 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 movie producer Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed them. Its leaders asked actresses to wear black when they walk along the red carpet at an awards ceremony on Sunday. They want women to use the red carpet to speak out against sexual inequality. An actress said: "For years, we've sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This time, the industry cannot expect us to go up and twirl around. That's not what this moment is about."
