Already expected to explore issues surrounding sexual harassment, pay equality and representation, this year's Makers conference will now include a conversation featuring representatives from the Time’s Up movement.
Maha Dakhil, Rashida Jones, Malina Matsoukas, Katie McGrath, Natalie Portman, Nina Shaw, Jill Soloway and Tina Tchen will participate in a special panel for the feminist media brand's 2018 conference.
"Makers is honored that Time's Up will be an integral part of the 2018 Makers conference," said Dyllan McGee, founder and executive producer of Makers. "It's exciting to watch a new movement in the making."
“Charles in Charge” star Nicole Eggert has accused her TV costar Scott Baio of molesting her when she was underage. Meanwhile, Baio responded by accusing Eggert of making up claims about him.
The latest sparring match touched off over the weekend when Eggert, 46, called Baio a “creep” on Twitter, tweeting to another user to ask him “what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor.”
Another tweet from the “Baywatch” actress, which has since been deleted, alleged that Baio began behaving inappropriately when she was 14, according to People. The actors worked together on “Charles in Charge,” a 1980s sitcom, and Baio, in his 20s at the time, played Eggert’s nanny.

Jay-Z, who will be up for eight Grammys Sunday, got President Trump’s attention during his guest appearance in the premiere episode of CNN’s “Van Jones Show.”
When Jones asked Jay-Z about Trump’s comments about “shithole” countries,” the hip-hop star said, “Everyone feels anger; but after the anger, it’s real hurtful. Because it’s looking down at a whole population of people, and it’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people. … This is the leader of the free world speaking like this.”
Trump, apparently a CNN viewer despite giving the network a “Fake News” award, tweeted his response on Sunday morning to Jay-Z’s appearance.
I think I found my way by hook and by crook to what I'm really suited to. I think throughout my life I've learned things about talking to an audience, conveying a story to an audience, and I can really help do that with scientists, because the thing I had when I was 11 I still have with me, which is my curiosity.
