Dress in an ankle-length purples and tan dress, Judd was poised as she was elegant as she headed into the discussion.

Her long brown locks fell across her back and a touch of blush ran across her rosy cheeks. 

Simple white heels added a bit of flair to the stylish ensemble, which looked ideal for the season.

Sorvino dressed in a chic red number with purple cuffs that was as powerful as it was feminine.

Pointed black stilettos added a touch of sophistication to the modern look, while her medium-length blonde tresses hid a pair of gorgeous glittering earrings.

Judd and Sorvino have been at the center of the Time’s Up movement from the beginning. 

Both accused entertainment mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, and they walked the red carpet together at this year’s Oscars.  

‘I want people to know that this movement isn’t stopping,’ Sorvino said during the pre-award show walk.

‘We’re going forward until we have an equitable and safe world for women. And so we want to take our activism and our power and change things for any women, anywhere, working in any workplace.’

Judd, who was one of the first actresses to speak out against Weinstein last fall, also spoke during the Oscars red carpet: ‘What’s so spectacular about this moment is that finally the world is able to hear,’ she said.

 ‘I believe that we women — our voices have been squelched and…those of us that have come forward have often been disbelieved [and] shamed. 

And so much of the movement is about externalizing that blame and putting it back where it belongs, which is with the perpetrator, and us being the phoenixes who can light the way not only with Hollywood, but for safe and equitable work places across all spaces and all sectors.’

Adding, ‘I would mention that the Time’s Up legal defense fund has over 20,000 folks who have donated, raising over $21 million for anyone in any type of occupation who’s experienced sexual misconduct — not just someone in Hollywood. 

They can go to the Times Up website and enlist the help of lawyers pro bono who will take on the case.’
