NEW YORK: Even if ac­tor Priyanka Cho­pra was not at the 75th Golden Globe Awards, it didn’t stop her from lend­ing sup­port to the Time’s Up cam­paign by sport­ing an all-black en­sem­ble. The ac­tor took to In­sta­gram to shared a pho­to­graph of her­self in an all-black en­sem­ble – much like what was flaunted by Hollywood’s Who’s Who at the awards gala in Los An­ge­les. She cap­tioned it: “Today we wear black. Wher­ever you are, who­ever you are, what­ever you’re do­ing... join us. Time’s Up. Why we wear black.” The Golden Globe Awards event saw most celebri­ties in black en­sem­bles, sig­ni­fy­ing a si­lent protest against the spate of sex­ual ha­rass­ment scan­dals that have rocked Hollywood. Putting out the mes­sage louder were black-and-white ‘Time’s Up’ pins. The colour black was cho­sen as a way for the movie and TV in­dus­try to make a state­ment against a per­va­sive cul­ture of mis­con­duct. The Time’s Up cam­paign is a coali­tion of 300 Hollywood women-ac­tors, di­rec­tors, pro­duc­ers, writ­ers, agents and en­ter­tain­ment ex­ec­u­tives-who have also es­tab­lished a $13 mil­lion le­gal de­fence fund to pro­vide sup­port for women and men who have ex­pe­ri­enced sex­ual ha­rass­ment or abuse in the work­place.
