  • Golden Globes: 5 Actresses Who Brought Activists to the Show

Speaking to E!, Watson said it was Williams who "spearheaded" the idea of actresses bringing activists with them as their red carpet guests. "And we feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together in a thick black line dividing then from now". "We're here because of Tarana", Williams told Ryan Seacrest on the carpet. "She started the #MeToo movement".

Laura Dern's guest was Monica Ramirez, the co-founder and president of the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas.

It's an nearly certainty that all of these women will be wearing black, an initiative organised by the Time's Up campaign to stand in solidarity with those who experience sexual harassment, assault or abuse across all industries. Sarandon will be bringing along Rosa Clemente, who has campaigned for voter engagement among youth of color, third party politics, United States political prisoners, the rights of Puerto Rico to become an independent nation, and media justice.

Emma Stone brought tennis legend and gender-equality trailblazer Billie Jean King.

Ramirez said that farmworker women "pick, pack and plant the food that we eat and have a long history of combating workplace sexual violence".

Actresses, and actors have been hinting for weeks they will attend tonight's show wearing black, making a statement with their attire - arguably the focus of any awards show - to stand in solidarity with sexual assault survivors.




The initiative vowed support for women in the entertainment business and beyond, from janitors to health care workers.

"Each of us will be highlighting legislative, community-level and interpersonal solutions that contribute to ending violence against women in all our communities".

Also, like CarterMatt on Facebook to get more updates on this show and some others we cover.

"That's the future, and we have momentum, and we want to say to everyone that they should join us", she explained.

For those excited to see if numerous A-list stars are bringing their significant others or family members as their dates to the Golden Globes, you will have to wait for a different award show.
