Hilary Rosen, Vice Chair of SKDKnickerbocker, and Others Exit Board of Time’s Up After “Withering Backlash” for Trying to Assist NY’s Former Governor Cuomo

by | Sep 7, 2021

Time’s Up said that it plans to revamp its board of directors “after its leaders suffered a withering backlash for trying to assist New York’s disgraced former governor Andrew Cuomo, who resigned amid allegations that he harassed nearly a dozen women.

“Revelations that Time’s Up’s former leaders were involved in strategy sessions with then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office have rocked the nonprofit that began as a sisterhood of powerful Hollywood women who vowed to upend the male-dominated status quo.”

The Los Angeles-based organization’s chief operating officer, Monifa Bandele, was named interim CEO, but the group continues to grapple with allegations that it has failed women who asked for its support.

Board members including Eva Longoria, Shonda Rhimes, Nina Shaw, Hilary Rosen, Katie McGrath, Christy Haubegger, Ana Navarro and Jurnee Smollett offered their resignations to give Bandele an opportunity to put together her own leadership team.

“The move comes after sexual harassment survivors continued to blast the organization on social media. Some have criticized the involvement of Rosen, (shown above), who is vice chair of the powerful Washington, D.C., public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker and a high-profile Democratic operative. Rosen declined to comment,” states the Los Angeles Times report.

According to the organization’s website, Time’s Up  is working to create a world “where women have an equal shot at success and security. A world where no one lives in fear of sexual harassment or assault.”
