Sexual harassment in the workplace has been dragged into the limelight and rightly so but how can we embed it in our everyday conversations and local community?
If you enjoyed watching the Golden Globes and more recently the BAFTA’s you may have noticed one colour in particular dominating the red carpet. “Actresses wore black gowns in support of the TIME'S UP movement, standing in solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment. “ Following on from the recent #metoo movement motivated by the dark underbelly of Hollywood, and opening our eyes to just how many women have been affected.
“TIME’S UP is a unified call for change from women everywhere: from movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike, to envision nationwide leadership that reflects the world in which we live.”
Our ethical fashion icon, Emma Watson was a huge inspiration at the Globes bringing with her “Marai Larasi the Executive Director of Imkaan, a UK-based black and minority ethnic women's organization which works to prevent and respond to violence against marginalized European girls and women.”
Marai- what can I say. You were the best date on the most meaningful red carpet I have ever walked. Thank you for being so darn articulate and fun. Thank you for the trust, care, compassion and solidarity. I am so proud to say I work with #Imkaan and the End Violence Against Women Coalition and to be learning from you. Emma 💪 @jusmarai
