Actresses to Bring Activists as Guests to Golden Globes

The women of Time's Up, the official Hollywood initiative to combat sexual harassment both within and beyond the entertainment industry, picked the dress code, encouraging men and women to wear black as a symbol of solidarity with those combating sexual harassment, discrimination, and assault. Motorcycle officers cruised down the red carpet.

Streep will attend with Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Williams with Tarana Burke, the founder of the "me too" movement, and Watson will bring Marai Larasi, the executive director of Imkaan, a Black-feminist organisation.

Laura Dern The "Big Little Lies" actress said on Instagram that she is "holding our mothers and grandmothers and all fearless women who taught us about Voice" by wearing black on the red carpet.

Burke, the founder of the #metoo movement and senior director at Girls for Gender Equity, will accompany Michelle Williams. We want to encourage all women- from those who live in the shadows to those who live in the spotlight, from all walks of life, and across generations- to continue to step forward and know that they will be supported when they do.

"Really, the most exciting thing is I thought I'd have to raise my daughter to learn to protect herself in a risky world". Hollywood stars are wearing black to speak out against sexual harassment in the workplace, and it's not just about matters in Hollywood.

Dressed in a sparkly black top and plain trousers, Messing expanded the message behind the protest to include equality for all women.

The actresses will shun partners and loved ones as their red carpet guests, instead choosing instead to invite activists and inspirational women to bring further impact to the #whywewearblack and fight for racial and gender equality.

Speaking to Giuliana Rancic on the E! red carpet, the "Will & Grace" star called out the network for paying former co-host Catt Sadler nearly half of her partner Jason Kennedy.

As we wait for this year's red carpet to kick off, take a look back at some of the biggest stars' first ever Golden Globes looks. King is the founder of the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative and the co-founder of World TeamTennis, among other organizations. She also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. But we're saying women in Hollywood have [an opportunity] to amplify [the message]. It is our hope that in doing so, we will also help to broaden conversations about the connection to power, privilege and other systemic inequalities.
