It's Time Hollywood's Male Stars Use Their Power To Level Playing Field

ZonaHollywood.com - CATEGORY Latest news: TITLE

This year’s Golden Globes served as the launch of Time’s Up, a fund that organizers say will pay for legal support to people who have experienced sexual harassment, assault or abuse in the workplace. Women have been at the forefront of this conversation, and that continued at the Golden Globes. Funny thing, though — none of the male winners that night had anything to say about sexual harassment or Time's Up when they took the stage.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are this Sunday. The Oscars are in March. I’m curious if the men who will be honored — powerful men who are not without considerable leverage in their chosen profession — will remain silent yet again.

Here’s an idea: What if they used their time onstage to announce one or two actionable things they intend to do? Concrete things. Such as:

"I will make it a condition of every future contract that my female co-star and I get the same deal. And I’m announcing this tonight because I want you — audiences and colleagues alike — to hold me accountable.”
