Jennifer Lopez spoke out about sexual harassment and assault during a press conference in Puerto Rico on Sunday.
The singer and actress wore all black in support of the #TimesUp movement, saying, “Today is the Golden Globes in Los Angeles, and a lot of the women, with hashtag Times Up, are standing up for equality — to be treated equally and for sexual harassment. And I stand here in black today doing the same from far away. And it’s the same thing here in Puerto Rico, we want to be treated equally.”
At least 300 actresses, directors, agents, writers, producers and other powerful women in Hollywood signed the Times Up initiative, which includes a legal defense fund to support victims of sexual harassment that’s already raised $15 million.
A number of actresses wore black to the Golden Globes on Sunday evening in solidarity to stand up against sexual harassment and sexual assault and to promote equality.
The Times up movement grew out of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which rocked the industry.
