Elizabeth Perkins Names James Woods At #MeToo Rally

Elizabeth Perkins Names James Woods At #MeToo Rally”

Perkins held a sign that read "James Woods #MeToo".

Actress Elizabeth Perkins held a sign naming "Once Upon a Time in America" actor James Woods above the hashtag #MeToo during a rally against workplace harassment in Los Angeles this weekend.

The rally took place on Hollywood Boulevard, where people walked in support of victims as part of the #MeToo Survivors March and the Take Back the Workplace March.

"Not in pots, not in plants, keep your junk inside your trousers", the crowd chanted for a few minutes, before shifting gears to: "Harvey Weinstein is a joke, women workers just got woke".

In September, Amber Tamblyn accused Woods, 70, of trying to pick her up when she was underage.

Perkins isn't the only actress who has called out Woods.

Tamblyn claimed in a Twitter post about their alleged encounter that when Woods found out she was just 16, he replied "even better".

"Since I know people love to question the [integrity] and honesty of women when they come forward with stories like this, here you go", the actress tweeted alongside the texts that show the friend remembering the incident after Tamblyn brings it up.

Oscar-winning producer Cathy Schulman, who presides over the Women in Film advocacy group, was one of the speakers at the march.

Elizabeth Perkins is the latest actor to suggest that she has also experienced sexual harassment in Hollywood. "He wanted to take us to Vegas". "They will never have to choose to put out or keep their job".

During her speech, Schulman said the issue of sexual harassment won't be solved by firing weeding out sex criminals. Women, she said, have to be protected from prejudice and abuse. She added that human resources departments must undergo a reform and workplaces must be diversified to see real change.

Event organizers estimated there were about 200 to 300 attendees.
