Women will wear black at 2018 Golden Globes to protest sexual harassment

Stories of sexual harassment and assault are sadly still ongoing in the entertainment industry.

As well as alleged serial offender Harvey Weinstein, several women and men have come out against the likes of comedian Louis C.K. and award-winning actor Kevin Spacey.

The protest will not stop at the end of 2017 as several women are planning to take on the 2018 Golden Globes with force.

According to Us Weekly, female attendees at January’s awards will wear black to protest the decades-long harassment.

The idea was reportedly started by a small group of actresses who decided to wear the typical mourning colour in solidarity. But now lots of A-listers have got in on the movement with 30 women currently planning to participate, says a source.

“This movement is spreading rampantly and pretty much all the nominated women and others attending are participating. All the stylists who already did fittings are now changing out their clients’ original picks for Globes,” an insider told the magazine.

It’s not clear who exactly will be donning black but it could be anyone from the list of nominees and presenters which includes outspoken women such as Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep and Emma Stone.

The 2018 SAG Awards has also listened to women in Hollywood. No men will be presenting the ceremony in January with actress Kristen Bell leading the all-female line-up.

“Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman. This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave in speaking up,” the SAG Awards’ executive producer, Kathy Connell, told The Hollywood Reporter.

However, the Golden Globes will be presented by Seth Meyers. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for all the black gowns on the red carpet on 7 January.
