Sad tale of Time’s Up and Hollywood’s failed activism

DM

Looks like time might be up for Time’s Up. As The Post reported in a devastating exclusive last weekend, the glittery Hollywood organization — meant to help underprivileged women fight workplace sexual harassment and abuse — spent just $312,000 of the more than $3 million raised in 2018, its inaugural year, on legal bills for victims. The rest went to salaries ($1.4 million), advertising and p.r. ($400,000), and nearly $1 million on a multinational law firm with lobbyists in D.C. Inspired by an open letter from Alianza Nacional de Campesinas (The National Women’s Farmworkers Alliance) to Hollywood’s women, expressing sorrow and solidarity, Time’s Up formally launched on January 1, 2018. The message: All women, regardless of socioeconomics, are in this fight together.
