Emma Watson has donated £1 million ($1.4 million) to a new UK fund, designed to support organisations working to stop harassment and abuse in workplaces across industries.
The Harry Potter star’s donation coincides with the creation of this new fund—the UK Justice and Equality fund—which was announced in an open letter signed by more than 200 British and Irish women in the entertainment industry.
Saoirse Ronan, Emilia Clarke, Jodie Whittaker, Carey Mulligan, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightly, and Olivia Colman were among the women who signed the letter.
“Please join us and donate to the new Justice and Equality Fund, which will support frontline organisations that are working to end a culture where harassment and abuse are commonplace,” wrote Watson in an Instagram post about the open letter.
