Ava DuVernay, Reese Witherspoon, Geena Davis and Kerry Washington are among the Hollywood figures teaming up to mark the one-year anniversary of Time’s Up with a celebrity auction to benefit the group’s legal fund.

The Time’s Up campaign kicked off at the Golden Globes in January. To date, the legal fund has raised more than $22 million (around P1.1 billion).

The Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund says that to date it has connected more than 3,750 women and men to legal resources. MKH
