The recent sexual harassment has shaken Hollywood, even when most of them knew about everything happening in the industry. However, no matter how late it is, they have finally woken up and ready to take a steady action against all those who are littering the aisle of Hollywood for every man/woman who dreams to make it big in the industry.
A few months ago, it was announced that Hollywood actresses would wear black to 2018 Golden Globes as a way to protest the harassment, assault and other acts from powerful men in Hollywood – acts that have, until now, been allowed to go unchecked for decades.
Later it was announced that this fashion protest would be part of a bigger movement called Time’s Up. The initiative gathers the influence and attention of Hollywood’s female stars to help the working class women who are suffering from the pervasive inequality in whatever field they may work — be it farmers, hotel workers, or factory workers — and give them access to money, lawyers, and advice so that they too are able to rise up and fight for what’s right without fear of not being able to provide for their families.
Along with the actresses, even the male actors decided to be a part of the movement and were decked in black. Here are some of the best dressed from the 2018 Golden Globes who managed to stand apart in the crowd of a single colour. They looked confident, beautiful and more than all of that, proud for their stance on something so crucial for the industry.
There were many actresses who used the opportunity of Black Golden Globes to share the spotlight with very important women activists who have been fighting this fight for years. Here’s to all of them.
