Hollywood Women Will Wear Black At The 2018 Golden Globes To Protest Sexual Harassment
Black isn't usually seen very often on the Golden Globes red carpet, but the 2018 show looks like it may be the exception. According to People Magazine, Hollywood actresses are allegedly banning together to wear all black to the Golden Globes and other award shows in 2018. They are doing this as a protest against sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.
The amount of sexual harassment incidents that have been happening in Hollywood was brought to light when The New York Times released a detailed account of Harvey Weinstein's alleged acts of sexual harassment. Since then, many actresses have spoken out about their encounters with the producer. Some of those actresses to speak against Weinstein are Lupita Nyong’o, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Salma Hayek. Along with Weinstein, a handful of other men in the industry have been accused of sexual harassment recently.
The only other time celebrities all wore black to an award show was after September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks. Many of the attendees at the show wore black in solemnity with people affected by the tragedy. That moment was not a coordinated effort between stars and their stylists, as this appears to be.
