Nearly 200 female British stars from film, TV and stage have signed an open letter calling for an end to sexual harassment across all industries.
It was reported that among the women who signed the letter were Emma Thompson, Keira Knightley and Emma Watson.
Emma Watson has given £1m to a new campaign backed by the women that aims at helping those affected by harassment.
The move is a show of solidarity with the Hollywood-based movement Time’s Up, launched in the wake of sexual abuse allegations by high-profile actresses against film producer Harvey Weinstein.
Watson is one of the first donors to the UK Justice and Equality Fund, which has launched a crowdfunding campaign to pay for a new advice network.
The fund has been set up by the 190 women who have signed the letter, along with a group of 160 people – including academics, activists and charity workers – to help victims “access support and justice”.
