As promised, a large number of actresses at the Golden Globes 2018 took part in the all black silent protest prepared since the end of last year, honoring the victims of sexual abuse whose voice we have heard in the past months.
Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria, Shonda Rhimes, Susan Sarandon, Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, Sadie Sink, Viola Davis, Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Chastain, Octavia Spencer, America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Angelina Jolie, Emma Stone, Amy Poehler, Emma Watson, Oprah – these are just a few of the names mentioned as part of the Time’s Up movement.
This year’s Golden Globes looked more like a glam funeral than anything else. Alongside Hollywood and television actresses who walked the red carped as part of the all black silent protest, there were numerous actors who followed in their footsteps and, out of solidarity, adopted the same dress code.
William H. Macy also made a statement by showing off the Time’s Up pin on the collar of his tuxedo.
The Strange Things bunch also wore their pins, as seen in the photo.
Time’s Up is the name of the movement which started as a result of the October 2017 Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment stories. Weinstein was the first in a long line of famous names that followed, who sexually harassed countless women in the entertainment industry, from actresses, to singers, to staff members and more.
Those facing sexual misconduct accusations so far are, aside from Weinstein, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Spacey, Albert Schultz, Danny Masterson, Russell Simmons, Nick Carter and others.
But back to th Golden Globes 2018, not all women took part in the all black silent protest. Model Barbara Meier, Press Association President Meher Tatna and actress Bianca Blanco opted for nude and bright red.
Tatna shared, through a source, that it is customary in Indian culture to wear festive colors at celebrations, such as the Golden Globes.
Meier defended her wardrobe choice by stating on Instagram that the freedom women have earned in the past decades allows her to wear whatever she feels sexy in. “If we now restrict this, because some men can not control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion”, she said.
Meanwhile, Blanco has yet to comment on her red evening gown option.
