2. A movement begun in 2018 by prominent women actors in response to the many sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men in the film industry (perhaps most notably film producer Harvey Weinstein). The term is used in the name of the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, which assists with legal fees incurred by the victims of such misconduct. It is typically capitalized and is often used as a hashtag. Along with Me Too, Time's Up has changed the conversation not only in Hollywood but in every workplace. To all the powerful men who have abused their power to mistreat women, we say: Time's Up. Yet another producer exposed for misconduct. #TimesUp
