Marie Claire, Time's Up Entertainment Partner for Event Honoring Women Making a Change in Hollywood (Exclusive)
Ava DuVernay, Constance Wu, Jessica Chastain and more are set to make an appearance at the celebration on Tuesday.
In a special collaboration with Time's Up Entertainment, Marie Claire magazine will be hosting a celebration to honor Hollywood's change makers on Tuesday in Los Angeles. The invite-only event features April cover stars Ava DuVernay, Constance Wu and Jessica Chastain, among a variety of 50 other women who are striving to create lasting change in the entertainment industry.
"We created Change Makers to shine a light on the forces transforming Hollywood," said Anne Fulenwider, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire. "Our April cover stars, Ava DuVernay, Jessica Chastain and Constance Wu, are exemplars of reform in the entertainment industry, whether it’s fighting for inclusion, representation, diversity, agency, or gender and pay equality. We’re excited to have partnered with Time's Up Entertainment to assemble a portfolio of Change Makers. Together, they have galvanized the industry and inspired a movement, and we are proud to stand by them in their efforts."
Honoree Wu, who recently starred in Crazy Rich Asians, is set to reprise her role in the upcoming sequel and continues to star on ABC's Fresh Off the Boat; Chastain portrays an older version of Beverley Marsh in It: Chapter 2, due out in September; and DuVernay has been in the process of producing a new Netflix series, When They See Us, which will tell the story of the Central Park Five.
The Change Makers event is being held together with Time's Up Entertainment, and in partnership with Modern Creation München (MCM). DJs from the collective "woman." — Ana Calderon, Daisy O'Dell and Michelle Pesce — will provide the entertainment for the night. Click here for more information.
