Time's Up and the climate of change

'Where Is Forgiveness?'

Oprah Winfrey, a special contributing correspondent for "Sunday Morning," moderates a panel discussing the Time's Up campaign (including actresses America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Tracee Ellis Ross and Reese Witherspoon; Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy; producer Shonda Rhimes; and attorney Nina Shaw) about the power of speaking out about sexual harassment, abuse, and gender inequality.

Oprah Winfrey: "Where Is Forgiveness? ... When somebody's been accused of sexual harassment and loses their job, should they ever work again?"

Reese Witherspoon: "I'm not here to make that decision."

Shonda Rhimes: "I was raised in a world in which I believe that there has to be a belief that people can grow, change and learn and know better. At a certain point there has to be room for reconciliation in a world, in a weird way. But a lot of people don't think that right now. And a lot of women have the right to not feel that right now."

America Ferrara: "Speaking of this moment, as a culture we’ve gone from not listening, hearing or believing women, and how were we going to skip over the whole part where women get to be heard, and go straight to the redemption of the perpetrators? Can’t we live in that space where it’s okay for perpetrators to be a little bit uncomfortable with what the consequences will be?"
