Per the Time's Up website, the movement is a “unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere. From movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike, we envision nationwide leadership that reflects the world in which we live.”

The statement that Portman and others posted on New Year's Day follows the original letter of solidarity that 700,000 female farmworkers sent to Hollywood actors in November. The collective itself is largely a response to the slew of sexual misconduct allegations that were made public in 2017.

Directors Guild Sets the Bar With Progressive Nominations .
If it wasn’t already an issue, Natalie Portman certainly made it one at the Golden Globes: There are talented, award-worthy female directors in the Oscar hunt this year. You just have to nominate them. While female-centric stories were certainly in the spotlight Sunday night, it was notable that there were no female filmmakers nominated for best director. This despite there being clear choices: Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Dee Rees (“Mudbound”), and Angelina Jolie (“First They Killed My Father”) are all worthy contenders this year.The Directors Guild of America dodged this bullet Wednesday by nominating Gerwig, making it just the ninth time the group has recognized a woman.
