Revealed: The biggest celebrity donors to $15million Time’s Up fund launched by 300 female Hollywood stars to help ‘less privileged women’ fight sexual harassment
Dozens of Hollywood A-listers have donated to a $15million legal fund to fight sexual harassment claims by blue-collar workers.
Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw, J.J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath, Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep are among the biggest donors to the fund, which is being organised by the Time’s Up campaign group.
The organization was formed in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal with the aim of fighting sex abuse while promoting women in the workplace.
Other big-ticket donors include Jennifer Aniston, producer Shonda Rhimes, Kathleen Kennedy who heads Lucasfilm, Taylor Swift and Oprah Winfrey.
Time’s Up announced itself to the world in an open letter published in a full-page New York Times ad signed by dozens of A-listers.
Put together by a group of influential female attorneys in Tinseltown and published the week of the Golden Globes Awards, the letter acknowledges the privilege enjoyed in Hollywood and calls for a national sea change in gender equality.
