Actresses Elizabeth Perkins and Frances Fisher were among those who came out on Sunday to take part in a #MeToo march in Hollywood, with the Weeds star holding up a sign naming the actor James Woods.
Hundreds of people turned out for Take Back The Workplace and #Metoo Survivors marches to support victims of sexual assault and harassment, inspired by a social media campaign that has portrayed such abuse as a pervasive feature of American life.
Perkins marched at the front of the line alongside former local Fox News reporter Lauren Sivan, who is among the women who allege they were sexually harassed by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The Take Back the Workplace March and the #MeToo Survivors March joined forces in the heart of Hollywood, near the entrance to the Dolby Theater where the Academy Awards take place.
They walked side by side past the tourists, costume shops, strip clubs and a man wearing a ‘Whiskey Made Me Do It’ T-shirt to gather for a rally of rousing speeches from the likes of Harvey Weinstein accuser Lauren Sivan and Oscar-winning producer Cathy Schulman.
‘Not in pots, not in plants, keep your junk inside your pants,’ the crowd chanted for a few minutes, before shifting gears to: ‘Harvey Weinstein is a joke, women workers just got woke.’
Other chants included, ‘Survivors united, we’ll never be divided’ and ‘Whatever we wear, wherever we go, “yes” means “yes” and “no” means “no”.’
As she marched along, Perkins, 56, at one point held up a handwritten sign that said: ‘James Woods #MeToo.’
In September, actress Amber Tamblyn called Woods ‘predatory’, saying he tried to pick her and a friend up at a Las Vegas bar when she was 16. Responding, Woods accused Tamblyn of lying.
