Streep, Williams Bring Activists As Golden Globe Guests

Golden Globes paint it black honouring #MeToo, Time's Up movements

Laura Dern, Amy Poehler, Susan Sarandon, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Michelle Williams and Shailene Woodley have said that on the red carpet they will each be accompanied by activists in a range of fields. We want to fix that.

The guests will include #MeToo hashtag creator and civil rights activist Tarana Burke, as well as farm worker, restaurant worker and racial justice leaders Marai Larasi, Rosa Clemente, Ai-jen Poo, Monica Ramirez, Calina Lawrence and Saru Jayaraman.

Streep added that women feel "sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together in a thick black line dividing then from now". "We're here because Tarana started a movement and she planted a seed years ago and it's grown and caught fire".

Stone's decision to bring King isn't a wholly unprecedented move; in 2015, the year Reese Witherspoon played Cheryl Strayed in Wild, the film based on Strayed's book, she took the author as her date.

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.

The Time's Up sexual harassment prevention initiative launched January 1 by Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and other prominent Hollywood women includes, among other things, a legal defense fund for victims, legislative initiatives and a request that women wear black to the Golden Globes.

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

Tonight, the Golden Globes 2018 red carpet is certainly a little bit different than it's been in past years. "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". "We don't what to create hierarchies where we are saying women of Hollywood are more important than anyone else but women in Hollywood have a chance to amplify the issues and shine a light on them".
