Where To Buy The Golden Globe's Hottest Accessory, The Time's Up Pins, Shirts, And Other Merch
You can buy the "Time's Up" pins worn by celebrities at the Golden Globes.
Where can I buy a "Time's Up" pin?
This year at the 2018 Golden Globes, the must have accessory served a greater purpose than just getting on an entertainment network's "Best Dressed" list.
Celebrities made a statement with their outfit choice for the award show; almost all women wore black to publicly condemn sexual harassment in the workplace, while many men, who traditionally wear black tuxedos to the show, wore a "Time's Up" pin.
The pins are a part of the Time's Up initiative which addresses the inequalities in every workplace, from Hollywood sets to low-wage service jobs, that women face every day.
How can I get a Time's Up pin?
To show you aren't taking this injustice lying down either, you can show your solidarity by pre-ordering the pin, and other merch, through the Time's Up website.
The Time's Up pin costs $12, and you can expect delivery in four to six weeks.
100% of the proceeds from all Time's Up merchandise will be donated to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, which provides subsidized legal services for those subjected to workplace sexual harassment and abuse.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, during a private Creative Artists Agency meeting that helped birth the Time's Up initiative, Reese Witherspoon approached costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips to design the pin in time for the Golden Globes.
Phillips said, "Reese asked me to come to the actors' group, and told me they were going to be wearing black and would I consider creating a pin for the nominees and male presenters. We were up against the holidays, but I said I could do it, and the first person I called was my partner-in-crime, [jewelry designer] Michael Schmidt."
In just two weeks, Phillips and Schmidt designed the pin and had 500 pins manufactured within the U.S.
Phillips said it was an honor to be called into action.
Time's Up was announced on New Year's day by 300 women in the entertainment industry. Some of those women include such names as Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay, and America Ferrera.
Since then, their GoFundMe page has risen over $16 million from 14,957 people for the Legal Defense Fund.

Because tomorrow is too far.
Because your fight is my fight.
Because enough is enough.
Because it's time.

Time's Up member Eva Longoria told The New York Times that the Golden Globes was a key platform for this movement. "For years, we've sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This time the industry can't expect us to go up and twirl around. That's not what this moment is about."
The women of the Time's Up movement find that this is a rare opportunity to meet regularly. They have often found that they were one of the few females on sets, or in the writer and producer rooms.
Witherspoon said, "We have been siloed off from each other. We're finally hearing each other, and seeing each other, and now locking arms in solidarity with each other, and in solidarity for every woman who doesn't feel seen, to be finally heard."
Shonda Rhimes, who likens this experience to a feeling from her childhood, when her mother took her around the neighborhood in a wagon to register black women to vote, summarized it best. "We're a bunch of women used to getting stuff done. And we're getting stuff done."
