Actress and activist Emma Watson has donated £1 million to kickstart a new British fund to help women facing harassment and abuse at work, launched ahead of Sunday's Baftas and backed by hundreds of female entertainment stars.The justice and equality fund was announced in an open letter supporting the US Time's Up movement, signed by around 200 women, including actresses Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Keira Knightley and Saoirse Ronan.The letter is addressed to "dear sisters" -- as was a similar missive signed by Hollywood stars last month -- and calls for an international movement to stamp out a culture of abuse exposed by the Harvey Weinstein scandal.It follows a legal aid fund set up by A-list stars in the United States to help both women and men abused at work.
