A chorus of women and girls of all generations shouted the words "Time's Up" outside Downing Street, the epicentre of UK government. Through the rain, sleet and, snow, thousands gathered next to the UK's corridors of power to mark the one-year anniversary of the Women's March in London. This year, the march takes its inspiration from the #Time'sUp movement, launched earlier this month by over 300 women in Hollywood to fight systemic sexual harassment across all industries.
We need to talk about a trend that appears to be emerging in Hollywood's post-Weinstein era. The era which declared Time's Up on harassment and abuse. It's a gesture that has the power to enact a tangible change in the industry, but it's important it's not hijacked by those in need of a quick PR fix when they find themselves in the midst of a controversy. I'm talking about Hollywood men donating their salaries to charity after they find themselves in the midst of a public outcry.
Sometimes, just sometimes, life imitates art. That's precisely what happened when Laura Dern posted a lovely #WomanCrushWednesday Instagram about her Last Jedi co-star Kelly Marie Tran. And, one of Dern's Big Little Lies co-stars had something to say—something that sounded like a line straight out of the show. "What?! It’s Woman Crush Wednesday? As I choose mine, I find out it’s her birthday too?! @kellymarietran I worship you and your genuine bright light. Can’t wait to see you this weekend!!"
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
