Emma Watson Had A Giant Time's Up Tattoo At The Oscars Afterparty
At the Vanity Fair bash after the Academy Awards, the 27-year-old actress debuted a large temporary tattoo that read “Times Up” in black cursive ink on her right forearm.
The Time’s Up initiative was started earlier this year by women working in the entertainment industry. Its purpose is to combat sexual harassment and workplace inequality in Hollywood ― and everywhere else ― and also includes a legal defense fund.
Watson has been a staunch supporter of the movement from the very beginning.
“The clock’s been ticking on the abuse of power,” the actress wrote in a message on Instagram after the initiative was announced. “I stand in solidarity with women across every industry to say #TIMESUP on abuse, harassment, and assault. #TIMESUP on oppression and marginalization. #TIMESUP on misrepresentation and underrepresentation.”
Watson recently donated $ 1.4 million to the U.K.’s Justice and Equality Fund and signed an open letter with British women in the entertainment industry in an effort to make Time’s Up a global movement.
“There is no question that #TIMESUP should be and will be a global movement. A movement that is defined and led by those affected by the problem, not by those in power,” Watson wrote on Instagram in February.
