Golden Globes 2018: Emma Watson walks in all black

Seth Meyers hosts the 75th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills California Golden Globes 2018: Emma Watson walks in all black

As Meryl Streep emphasized during her appearance on the E! red-carpet pre-show, it's really about inclusiveness on all fronts and making sure women in all fields have a choice.

Many attending the Golden Globes were wearing black to protest sexual harassment.

Dern said she had reached out to Ramirez "to say that she stood with all the 700,000 women farm workers in solidarity for the women in our industry who were courageous enough to speak out about sexual harassment and assault".

Emma Stone brought the woman she played in the film "Battle of the Sexes" - tennis legend Billie Jean King. "It's a moment to transform both the written and unwritten rules that devalue the lives and experiences of women".

Michelle Williams' plus-one is Tarana Burke, who founded the #MeToo movement back in 1997 - two decades before that anthem became a hashtag, popularized by Alyssa Milano, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein investigation - and is senior director of the nonprofit Girls for Gender Equity.

"This issue does not really affect women in Hollywood".

It's for this reason that Streep chose to walk the red carpet this year with Ai-jen Poo, who is the Executive Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance. She cofounded ROC in New York City after 9/11, together with displaced World Trade Center workers, which has organized those who work in restaurants to win workplace justice campaigns, conduct research and policy work, partner with responsible restaurants, and launch cooperatively owned restaurants.

And Shailene Woodley brought Calina Lawrence, a member of the Suquamish Tribe and an advocate for Native Treaty Rights, the Mni Wiconi movement and #NoLNG253 movement.

The actress, who will be presenting at the event tonight, walked the annual event with Marai, the leader of Imkaan, a United Kingdom -based women's organization that is aimed at responding to and preventing violence against black minoritized women and girls. It's now Emma's turn and her generation to do that.

The move is part of a widening effort by prominent Hollywood women, who formed the umbrella group Time's Up, to extend the focus on sexual harassment to women marginalised because of class, sexuality, ethnicity or race.
