Dylan Farrow Responds to Golden Globes, #TIMESUP: ‘Is Time Really Up?’

Woody Allen’s adoptive daughter, who has accused director of sexual misconduct, says she hasn’t been brought into Hollywood’s push against abusers

Despite all the celebrities in black at the 2018 Golden Globes, Dylan Farrow wondered on Twitter Sunday, “Is this really the turning point?”

Farrow, who has accused director Woody Allen of sexually abusing her as a child, took to Twitter Sunday morning to discuss the #TIMESUP and #MeToo movements, which were a huge part of Sunday’s Golden Globes. She discussed her open letter in the New York Times in 2014, in which she told her side of the accusations against her adoptive father that stem back to 1992.

The open letter published was after Allen was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which honors “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” at the 2014 Golden Globes. Allen continues to deny Farrow’s accusations of any wrongdoing, and he has never been charged in the case. Allen did not immediately reply to TheWrap’s request for comment on Monday.

With “his time wasn’t up,” Farrow referenced what became a huge part of this year’s Golden Globes. A response to and show of solidarity with the numerous women who have come forward to report sexual misconduct by powerful men in Hollywood and beyond, #TIMESUP has spawned a legal defense fund for women. Celebrities wore black at the Golden Globes to show their support for the movement, and several brought women’s rights activists as their guests to help push the issue.

But Farrow noted how little effect her own story had on Hollywood in 2014.

This year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award winner was Oprah Winfrey, who used her acceptance speech to discuss the recent widespread accusations of sexual misconduct by men. Winfrey referenced women who have fought and continue to fight for their rights and safety, including Recy Taylor, a Black woman who was raped by six white men in Alabama in 1944, and fought unsuccessfully to bring them to justice.

“…I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!” Winfrey said during her speech. “And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me Too’ again.”
