Natalie Portman, Rashida Jones & More Join Forces To Represent Time's Up at Makers Conference 2018!

Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones are all smiles as they pose for a photograph backstage at The 2018 MAKERS Conference at NeueHouse Hollywood on Monday (February 5) in Los Angeles.

The ladies were in attendance to represent Time’s Up.

Joining Natalie and Rashida at the panel were filmmaker Ava DuVernay, CAA motion picture agent Maha Dakhil, Katie McGrath, Grammy-winning music video director Melina Matsoukas, entertainment lawyer Nina Shaw and writer-producer Jill Soloway.

“Usually we’re the only woman at work. Like many other industries, we walk onto a nearly all male set and we’re usually alone and we rarely get to interact with each other,” Natalie said (via THR) about the movement bringing together women. “If you’re the only woman in the room it isolates you and prevents you from sharing stories so if there are predators you don’t talk to each other. It’s empowering to be in a room, on the same team, and refuse to be pitted against each other. There’s not only one spot–we’re going to make room for all of us. It’s really powerful. And we have all these new friends.”

Natalie and the ladies also announced that, since the January 1st launch of Time’s Up, the organization has raised $20 million and received requests for legal aid from those who lack the means to defend themselves from workplace abuses — farm workers, hotel workers, steelworkers, and others.
