It's no doubt that the #MeToo Movement is defining a generation of women and men, finally being able to speak out about uncomfortable encounters that they have gone through at their workplaces. As Hollywood buckles down on making it a safer environment for all, so are a lot of jobs all across America. An organization that has grown from the #MeToo Movement is the Times Up Legal Defense Fund, created by 300 women in the entertainment industry to help women without the means to stand up and fight against accusers.
Rashida Jones, actress and daughter of Quincy Jones, who is a key member of Times Up, directed an anti-sexual harassment PSA for the organization. It's narrated by Donald Glover, and it covers things that would seem obvious not to do, but apparently hasn't been to some people.
The PSA covers issues of commenting on a co-worker's appearance, filing reports, and the ins and outs of dating in the workplace. Jones said why she decided to make the PSA saying,
“There’s been a lot of discussion about whether that’s even fair to link someone pinching an ass or something off-color at work to an actual assault. I think a lot of people struggle with the connection, because they think it’s dramatic to connect the two. So the PSA is intended to explain that there are these nuanced dynamics that are happening when there’s a power imbalance.”
For anyone needing more clarification on sexual harassment, Times Up set up a website an laid it out as clearly as possible, just visit: dontpullyourdickoutatwork.obviously
