TIME’S UP Entertainment

The TIME’S UP Guide to Working in Entertainment


TIME’S UP was born in Hollywood when some of the most powerful actresses and screen professionals in the world stood up and spoke out against sexism, violence, and double standards in our industry. 

TIME’S UP strives to end sexual discrimination and misconduct for women in entertainment and every industry.

One of the ways we work to do this is by empowering arts and entertainment workers with information about their rights, industry-specific norms, and practical ways they can advocate for themselves and their safety.

The entertainment industry is not a typical workplace, and so figuring out your rights and options around workplace harassment, discrimination, misconduct, and safety in entertainment roles can be confusing.

As part of this initiative, TIME’S UP developed resources for people in the entertainment industry who find themselves in situations that are at best awkward, or at worst, dangerous. These resources cover specific circumstances where people have historically been preyed upon, such as auditions and nude, intimate, and simulated sex scenes, as well as general guidance about your options and rights.
