Rancic said: âThe Timeâs Up Movement is not just about women in Hollywood, obviously, but women in all industries and these women and men use their voice for other people who donât have that camera and microphone in front of them.â

âI think that this movement is long overdue and tremendous, and Iâm excited to see really where it takes us,â she continued. âAs everyone knows, I think one thing everyone can agree on is that sexual harassment, intimidation, abuse in the workplace is not acceptable.â
The TV host added: âItâll be really interesting to see what happens at the next award show and where we go moving forward.â
As previously reported, some of Hollywoodâs leading ladies launched the initiative on New Yearâs Day, with the goal of raising money for a legal defense fund to provide support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault or abuse in the workplace. More than 300 women in entertainment are involved in the initiative.
To do their part in helping others, the Going Off Script author and her husband, Bill Rancic, have partnered up with Marshallâs. The longtime couple and the retailer are teaming up to help families stick to their New Yearâs resolutions.
âWeâre helping other people fulfill their New Yearâs resolutions,â he said, adding that they surprised a woman with a shopping spree at the store to help her find products that will help her family stick to their goals for 2018.
