Salma Hayek, Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd were the queens of the red carpet before the start of the Oscars, proof that the #MeToo and Time’s Up moves were going to be ubiquitous during the annual Hollywood big-screen.

Post-Weinstein Hollywood Symbols

But more than the form, it is the bottom that returned in the conversations, more particularly the movements #MeToo and Time’s Up, symbols of the emancipation of the women in the post-Weinstein Hollywood.

Two iconic actresses of this new era , Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino, were a hit when they came together on the red carpet. Both were among the first big names to testify in October, openly against the producer Harvey Weinstein , whom they accuse of having harassed them during the 90’s.

For refusing his advances they would have been placed, according to several witnesses, on the blacklist of Harvey Weinstein, who would have sought to dissuade Hollywood from proposing them roles.

I want people to know that this movement does not stop.” Mira Sorvino told to ABC. “We are moving towards an egalitarian society in which women are safe. “She explained that currently supported the presentation of a text anti-discrimination law to parliament of California.

We want to leverage our activism and power to make a difference for all women, everywhere, wherever they work.” said the 50-year-old actress, who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 1996.

What makes this moment spectacular is that, finally, the world gets to hear,” said Ashley Judd, qualifying with Mira Sorvino, of “phoenixes,” who had survived professionally in the past with the issue of Harvey Weinstein.

While on the red carpet, actress Salma Hayek hinted that she would present a video evoking the background of the film industry, and beyond, for six months. The Mexican-born comedian also accused Harvey Weinstein in mid-December of having made advances to her and then pressuring her for refusing.

“We have been friends for so long,” she said of Ashley Judd. “All our hard times, we went through them together and tonight we’re going to celebrate the fact that women are not going to have to fight so much anymore.”
