As if the red carpet bathed in black ensembles wasn’t powerful enough, attendees of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards took their support for the Time’s Up movement one step further. Yes, A-listers like Michelle Williams, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Emma Watson and Susan Sarandon brought along activists as their dates in lieu of family members and significant others. The movement against sexual harassment has rapidly picked up steam and become so much more than simply getting people talking, but getting people acting. In sharing the Golden Globes platform with the activists making such big strides to achieve change, the above-mentioned actresses are proving these pioneers are ones to celebrate.
This is an absolute shining moment for Hollywood, not to mention a truly spectacular way to kick off 2018.
