Dylan Farrow's powerful 'Time's Up' statement against Woody Allen

Ellen Pompeo Slams Dylan Farrow Asks Why Hollywood Says It's #TimesUp For Everyone But Woody Allen

The 32-year-old said that she stood in solidarity with the women attending the Golden Globes and making a stand against gender parity by dressing in all black, but added that the people of Hollywood need to remember that they have a real opportunity to make this moment count.

Throughout the dispute, big stars have continued to work with Allen. "Not just because he was a great thinker, because I have been known to have some reasonably profound insights myself, although mine invariably revolve around two eighteen-year-old cocktail waitresses and some rope handcuffs", reads the notes in a draft of short story "My Apology", according to Morgan.

"I struggle to understand how a woman who believes Woody Allen is "empowering to women" can claim the role as an advocate for women suffering from sexual harassment", Farrow said. 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.

Hollywood is smack bang in the middle of a revolution against sexual harassment and abuse, but Dylan Farrow has had it with some stars' apparent hypocrisy.

"I fully support women taking a stand, linking arms with other women (and men), advocating on behalf of one another to effect change not only in the entertainment industry but in the world at large", Farrow said in a statement to BuzzFeed on Monday. I thought things would change.

The accusations soon fell beside the wayside after the custody battle ended, but kicked off again with Dylan's open letter in The New York Times in 2014, which not only called out Allen, but those who remain compliant by continuing to work with him. You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. But for Farrow, this must feel intimately personal. "You know me when I get started", Ellen continued. She is pictured here with her mother Mia Farrow. No number of moving speeches or cool pins will make any lasting difference at all if we continue to pick and choose the women we're willing to listen to and ignore the rest out a lack of convenience or a love of prestige.
