Emma Watson has donated £1,000,000 to a gofundme page that aims to provide support for those affected by sexual harassment.
Other donations come from Tom Hiddleston and Keira Knightley who both contributed £10,000 each as well as £500 from Emma Thompson, and £1,000 each from Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker and Noomi Rapace.

The donations follow the publication of an open letter endorsed by more than 200 leading women in the entertainment industry.
The letter, which you can read here is one of two published in Sunday’s The Observer newspaper ahead of the BAFTA awards, demanding the eradication of sexual harassment across all industries.
The BAFTA red carpet is due to see many of the invited guests wear all black as part of the Time’s Up campaign. Nominated actress Saoirse Ronan said “the blackout gives a sense of purpose.”
