Remember when Hollywood liberals and feminists were all riled up about “Me Too” and started the “Time’s Up” movement to fight sexual abuse of women in the workplace? That all went out the window when Joe Biden was nominated, but until that point, they were so worked up that some top name Hollywood celebrities started a charity composed of two groups, the Time’s Up Foundation and Time’s Up Now Inc. They had such luminaries as Reese Witherspoon, Amy Schumer and Brie Larson on their boards, and they quickly went to work raising money to fight sexual predators.
The New York Post reports that in their founding year of 2018, the nonprofit organization raised over $3.6 million. It spent $157,155 on conferences on “gender equity,” which included “a retreat at the Ojai Valley Inn, a luxury resort and spa north of Los Angeles. The retreat was dominated by agents from the Creative Artists Agency, who apparently had difficulty deciding on what the core mission should be.” They also spent $288,000 on advertising, $112,000 on a public relations firm, over $58,000 on travel, and $1.4 million on salaries. That included $342,308 to former WNBA head Lisa Borders, who ran the group for four months before resigning after her adult son was accused of sexual misconduct.
I’ll let you click the link to find out how much they spent on supporting women who made legal claims of sexual harassment. They say their legal defense fund has spent over $1.7 million to help women, but the share of it that the two groups kicked in themselves is less than what Borders was paid for four months’ work.
Apparently, “non-profit” is a very subjective term.
