For the past few months, sexual harassment has been a very hot topic in Hollywood, with many powerful people in the media and film industry facing repercussions for their actions against women.
When the Golden Globes Awards Show airs in early January, several women in Hollywood are reportedly coming together to take a stance against sexual harassment. On the talk show “The Morning Breath,” Jackie and Claudia Oshry reported that women are “planning to wear all-black looks to the Jan. 7 show as a symbol of protest against sexual harassment in the industry.”
People Magazine initially broke the story, naming “Meryl Streep, Jessica Chastain, and Emma Stone” as participants of this movement.
These all black ensembles won’t just be a chic fashion statement, but a statement to other women that these stars believe and support those who have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment. Their ensembles will also depict their disdain for those who choose to act inappropriately towards women, regardless of their positions of power or excuses.
When we see Hollywood stand up for social or political causes, it is always an extremely powerful moment. In the past, Hollywood actors and actresses have worn blue ribbons to show their support for the American Civil Liberties Union and held up “Je Suis Charlie” signs to show their support for Charlie Hebdo after the magazine was attacked in Paris.
When the Golden Globes airs on January 7th, 2018, we will see first hand how Hollywood plans on treating these delicate, political times.
