Dylan reflected on how she made the decision to publish the letter following Allen being awarded the Cecil B. DeMille accolade for lifetime achievement "detailing the abuse [she] sustained at the hands of Woody Allen".

Among all the sexual predators being outed in Hollywood, one man who continues to remain relatively unaffected is Woody Allen.

Dylan Farrow's accusations kicked off years of controversy and acrimonious accusations against Allen, complicated by the fact that Allen left Mia Farrow for one of her other children, her daughter Soon-Yi Previn, and married Previn in 1997. Even in the height of the #MeToo movement, Allen released a film starring Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake and finished production on another movie starring Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning, and Timothée Chalamet. We can no longer let these men represent us in entertainment, politics, or any other realm. That is an admirable and worthwhile objective, I hope these women change the world.

When the Time's Up initiative launched on January 1, many actresses who have worked with Allen were included among the signees, including Scarlett Johansson, Cate Blanchett, Blake Lively, Emma Stone, and Greta Gerwig. It's very risky to factor in things you don't know anything about. "And my experience with Woody is he's empowering to women". I could [only] know my experience. When the creation of Time's Up was announced, Timberlake tweeted: "No more accepting sexual harassment and inequality at work as normal".

However, Twitter users quickly pointed out that the musician and actor stars in Wonder Wheel, Woody's latest film, despite Dylan's allegations that her adoptive father sexually abused her as a child.

'I'm honoured to be part of this movement, ' Lively said, accompanied by an image that read: 'To women in every industry who are subjected to indignities and offensive behavior that they are expected to tolerate to make a living: We stand with you.

Time's Up!, which recently unveiled a commemorative pin with its logo, and is supported by the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Shonda Rimes, is also one of the forces behind the movement to wear black to upcoming awards ceremonies like the Golden Globes.
