They are using their fame and status to push for change in various industries. Brie Larson, Stacy Smith, and Tessa Thompson are three key leaders of the movement. They spoke about the next concrete steps for Time’s Up with the Hollywood Reporter, detailing how they implement change in the movies that they work in. Smith said "’Changing hearts and minds’ — I'm not interested in that conversation anymore,” highlighting the dedication and drive to enact real change. Having role models such as these women is vital for empowering women across communities. The fact that these women are following through on promises exemplifies the benefits of healthier sexual relationships and protection for women.
