Ferrera Takes A Stand

The Golden Globe winner broke the news one day before she announced the Time's Up initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in Hollywood and the workplace. Ferrera as well as other well-known actresses such as Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, and Reese Witherspoon have all decided to take a stand against sexual harassment.

As previously reported, the campaign was announced on Monday, Jan. 1, along with an open letter that included signatures from celebrities such as Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Shonda Rhimes, and Ashley Judd.

The campaign aims to push for laws that punish companies that fail to take action against sexual misconduct in the workplace and to fight against the use of non-disclosure agreements that protect sexual abusers.

On Monday, the actress took to her Twitter to share a photo of herself holding a New York Times newspaper to show that the Time's Up letter of solidarity is official. Ferrera, as well as other female actresses, also took to Twitter to share the letter.
