Shocker, not. Time’s Up did about as much for sexual harassment victims as Joe Biden did to find a cure for cancer.
From Daily Mail: Time’s Up, the organization set up to fight sexual harassment in the work place in the wake of the #MeToo movement, spent the bulk of its donations of executive salaries and only a fraction on legal costs to help victims in its first year, records show.
Tax filings show that the organization, which was founded by Hollywood celebrities and is made up from the Time’s Up Foundation and Time’s Up Now Inc., raised $3,670,219 in 2018 in its first year of operation.
However, less than 10% was spent on helping those women who have experienced sexual harassment.
Filings show $312,001 was spent on the legal defense fund while $1,407,032 was spent on salaries. And more than $157,000 was spent on conferences at luxury resorts, and a further $58,395 was spent on travel.
The organization brought in Hollywood heavyweights during the early days of its operation with Reese Witherspoon, Amy Schumer and Brie Larson holding positions on its board.
The tax filings detail the mission of Time’s Up Now as being: ‘to promote safe, fair and dignified work for women of all kinds. We work to make sure that women are free from harassment and other forms of discrimination on the job, have equal opportunity for economic security and can achieve the highest positions of power wherever they work.’
But huge amounts were spent on executive salaries instead of legal support.
Lisa Borders was recruited to head Time’s Up but only spent four months at the organization after her 36-year-old son was accused of sexual misconduct. Nevertheless, the CEO managed to pull in $342,308 for her salary.
The Chief Marketing Officer, Rachel Terrace, drew a salary of $295,000 for her efforts during the organization’s first year. And treasurer Rebecca Goldman drew a salary of $255,327.
