2018 has begun with a flurry of headlines relating to sexual violence, notably the #TimesUp campaign highlighted during the Golden Globes. Women in Hollywood, including our own Emma Watson and Claire Foy, wore black to raise awareness of sexual violence and harassment and to stand in solidarity with women and survivors across all industries and communities around the world.
