Some of music’s biggest stars wore white roses on the Grammys red carpet, to mark their support of the #TimesUp movement.
A group of more than 300 leading women in Hollywood kicked off 2018 by launching an initiative that promises to not only shake up decades of sexual harassment, pay disparity and discrimination in Hollywood, but also help women in all fields who are struggling with the same problems. The high-profile organisers – among them producer Shonda Rhimes, director Ava DuVernay and actor Reese Witherspoon formed the ‘Time’s Up’ movement.
“Time’s Up is a unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere,” Time’s Up’s website said. “From movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike, we envision nationwide leadership that reflects the world in which we live.”
Hollywood’s elite wore Time’s Up pins and all black to show solidarity with sexual assault survivors to this year’s Golden Globe’s, and now artists at the Grammys showed support for the Time’s Up movement on Sunday 28th January with white roses on the red carpet.
It was revealed that some female music executives had emailed the award show’s attendees to wear roses on the carpet in support of the this initiative. Stars Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Sarah Silverman, the Chainsmokers, Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, Anna Kendrick, and the members of Imagine Dragons were amongst those representing the rose at the Grammys, along with host James Corden.
