As Time’s Up enters its second year, the Hollywood initiative to end rampant sexual harassment throughout the entertainment industry will once again be front and centre at the Golden Globe Awards.
As Variety reports, this year’s Globes — set to take place on Sunday, Jan. 6 — will feature numerous attendees sporting newly designed lapel ribbons and bracelets supporting Time’s Up.
According to Variety, the new ribbons and bracelets were designed by Hollywood costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips, and “symbolize that supporters are tied together in their joint commitment to create safe, fair and dignified workplaces for women of all kinds.”
Phillips shared a sneak peek on Instagram, writing, “What a difference a year makes.”
In a statement posted on the Time’s Up website last week, the organization revealed that its legal defence fund has been contacted for help by more than 3,800 men and women during its first year.
“We created the fund because all people deserve to be safe at work, but safety alone is far from our end goal,” reads the statement. “It’s the bare minimum. Sexual harassment stems from an imbalance of power. Issues of workplace safety for women, and especially for women of colour, are but a symptom of the power imbalance that plagues nearly every sector. We won’t stop fighting until there is gender balance in leadership and all women have the opportunity to reach their full potential at work.”
In addition to showing their support of Time’s Up by wearing ribbons, numerous attendees also supported the initiative by wearing black at last year’s Golden Globes.
Red carpet coverage of this year’s awards will be available to watch via livestream coverage on Facebook.
