Actresses To Wear Black At Golden Globes To Protest Sexual Misconduct

Rose Mc Gowan attends the screening of 'Lady in the Dark' during the 2017 TCM Classic Film Festival Actresses To Wear Black At Golden Globes To Protest Sexual Misconduct

This year, a number of actresses are planning on wearing all black to January's Golden Globe Awards ceremony in silent protest against sexual harassment.

"All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns", People Magazine quoted a source. You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change.

Following the initial accusations levied against Weinstein in October, Streep - who once referred to Weinstein as "God" in an acceptance speech and previously collaborated with him on films like August: Osage County and The Iron Lady, the latter for which she won an Oscar - said she was "appalled" by his alleged misconduct and also added that "not everybody knew".

Hillary Clinton wore white at Trump's inauguration ceremony and purple for her concession speech both colours have significant value in women's suffrage movement.

Since then more entertainment industry heavyweights such as director Brett Ratner, comedian Louis C.K. and actors including Dustin Hoffman, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Spacey and Jeffrey Tambor have been the subject of sexual misconduct allegations. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa. "Harvey supported the work fiercely, was exasperating but respectful with me in our working relationship, and with many others with whom he worked professionally".

However, the extent of his behavior was not known by all.

Streep praises the courage of the women who chose to speak out and let their stories be heard.

Fashion can be a powerful tool to convey important messages and if it can be used in politics to send out cross-border diplomatic messages, why can't it be used to campaign against sexual harassment?
