Toronto: Actor Hillary Swank believes Time's Up movement has helped women come together like never before and it will make things easier for the next generation of female artistes.

The sexual harassment scandal that rocked Hollywood following allegations against Harvey Weinstein, led to #MeToo and Time's Up movements where women from a cross section of society came forward to narrate their experience of facing abuse, creating a domino effect.

"This has been a long time coming," Swank said about the movement, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"When you think of the teens' when women were struggling for the right to vote and banding together, I think this has brought women together again in a really healthy way to support one another. The pendulum had to go way over here so people really could understand the plight," she said.
