Is There an End in Sight for 'Hotel Room Meetings' in Hollywood?by

Anyone even vaguely aware of world news late last year will likely remember the rise of the #MeToo movement and the exposure of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment and misconduct with several rising stars – and since that time, victims of abuse have continued to speak out against misconduct they have experienced – and, as a result, there has been something of a seismic shift in the way that such allegations are being handled. Charges against Weinstein will remain to press on – but for now, there are a number of bodies who are making moves to attempt to better represent stars in the face of unwanted conduct.

SAG-AFTRA, the largest acting union in the US, has this week put forward a proposal to bring an end to infamous ‘hotel room meetings’ that may have led to such occasions of abuse in the past. The union has set up what they have referred to as the Four Pillars of Change which are laid out to help fight against potential future cases of harassment across Hollywood. These proposals, it is reported, include potential analysis of moments in TV and film where actors are required to be nude or in compromising situations for a script. This week, however, the union has been more than clear on their wish to crack down on impromptu meetings behind hotel room doors – the likes of which, it is alleged, resulted in several cases of sexual misconduct at the hands of Harvey Weinstein.

Gabrielle Carteris, President and representative for SAG-AFTRA, was more than clear via the union’s main website as to why such motions to open said hotel doors were in progress. “We are committed to addressing the scenario that has allowed predators to exploit performers behind closed doors under the guise of a professional meeting,” her statement reads.

The #MeToo movement and the fallout from the Weinstein scandal has resulted in several high profile names falling under investigative eyes with regard to their supposed conduct behind the scenes. Such movements have also led to the removal of a number of parties from their roles, and household names such as Kevin Spacey and Louis CK have been met with a number of accusations apiece. It seems that #MeToo has plenty more work to do just yet – and for the protection of those involved, long may it continue.
