In the wake of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, the Producer's Guild of America (PGA) has announced their new anti-sexual harassment guidelines.

These have since been made public and include recommendations on how producers should act as well as requirements for training cast and crew. You can read the full document here.

"For the past three months, the PGA's Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force has been working diligently on a set of concrete and pragmatic recommendations for producers and team members to recognise and combat sexual harassment both on and off the set,” reads a statement from the PGA.

"We're proud to announce that the Task Force has finished the first stage of its work, resulting in the PGA Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines.” You can read the guidelines here.

Perhaps fittingly, the first movie that will officially adopt the PGA guidelines will be Wonder Woman 2, starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins.

“The guidelines are likely to change as our industry explores new approaches to this problem and as new resources become available,” the statement continues.

“But for the multitude of producers urgently seeking guidance on how to proceed with their work while holding a firm line against harassment, we believe this document will prove invaluable.”

Various producers — most infamously Harvey Weinstein — have been accused of numerous sexual assault allegations over the past few months. Women and men in Hollywood have banded together to stand against those perpetrating such behaviour under the #MeToo and Time’s Up banners.

The Time’s Up legal defence fund was set up by women in the entertainment industry to provide support to victims of sexual harassment at work and has raised more than $16m (£12m) so far.
