The fallout from sexual harassment charges

People in California and all over the country are not looking the other way anymore when it comes to sexual harassment. The vast amount of actors, directors and other celebrity figures who have been accused over the last month have been staggering, and the industry is saying "enough."

According to the New York Times, a powerful group of Hollywood women have begun meeting to discuss how to handle this problem that has been going on for decades. Women such as Reese Witherspoon and Oprah Winfrey are part of this very private group that consists of women from many different agencies in Hollywood. Some initial proposed solutions have included making sure there is an effective way to report abuse and hiring more women for powerful roles.

Some of the goals of these women is to make sure this subject is not forgotten or swept under the rug and that the culture in Hollywood changes. A code of conduct is being established but it is estimated it may take awhile, as it can be a complex process.

One way that Hollywood is currently handling the situation is taking away jobs and cancelling roles for those who have been accused. The SF Gate states that a number of projects have been delayed or cancelled due to women and men speaking up. Men whose careers have been negatively affected include Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Louis C.K. and Matthew Weiner. The move to take immediate action shows a changing attitude about sexual harassment in the industry.
