Reportedly, Reese Witherspoon and her networking skills are what brought the Time’s Up Movement to the forefront of the conversation prior to the 75th Annual Golden Globes. The mission, “a unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere,” began with an Instagram post from Witherspoon and a letter of solidarity signed by 300 or so leading Hollywood ladies and activists.
Witherspoon rallied a number of women to skip bringing a date to the Golden Globes and walk with other women or bring an activist as their date, plus just about every single person in the room wore black in solidarity.
Prior to the Globes starting, Witherspoon’s 18-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe posted a message to her mom on Instagram saying, “Thank you to my inspiration of a mother and to all the women paving the way for those who face these abuses of power. I see how hard these women are working to unite people of various backgrounds and to institute real, lasting change, and I am so proud of what they have and will accomplish. Please consider a donation to #timesup as a way to contribute to the support of those who face discrimination, harassment, and abuse in the workplace.”
Witherspoon didn’t see the message until after the show.”
Immediately as “Access” asked, “did you see what your daughter posted tonight?” brought Witherspoon to tears before she even saw what was written.
Witherspoon went on to say, “we want more for our girls, for our sons, it’s about creating a better world…” She also went on say that she’s not the ringleader of the movement, but her co-stars from “Big Little Lies” didn’t exactly agree.
