Oprah and other stars want to clean up toxic Hollywood

Some of the biggest Hollywood names in the business have joined forces to stop sexual harassment. Among them are powerful Hollywood women like Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman and Oprah Winfrey. These well-regarded television and movie personalities have been privately meeting to create a cross-industry plan that will stop sexual harassment in its tracks. The effort was inspired by the recent news regarding the allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault committed by movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

In addition to the above three names, television producer Shonda Rhimes, movie producers Amy Pascal and Kathleen Kennedy are also involved in the efforts. The group has been brainstorming potential solutions, such as requiring entertainment firms to employ more women, creating abuse reporting systems and establishing the battle cry, "Time's up."

In addition to Harvey Weinstein the scandal of sexual harassment and sexual assault has included big names in the entertainment industry like Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner and Louis C.K. The revelations about the alleged activities of these and other stars who have been accused of targeting women and men with their unwanted workplace advances, have inspired a national discussion about the best way to repair an extremely toxic Hollywood culture. One first step in fixing the problem has involved the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to state that it will create a code of conduct for all members.

It's important for all California residents to remember -- no matter what industry they work in -- that sexual harassment is unacceptable and unlawful behavior. The victims of sexual harassment are on the right side of the law, and they can stand up for their rights in court if necessary to bring their abusers to justice.
