On the heels of the devastating sexual assault and harassment allegations sweeping Hollywood (stemming from those against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein), actresses spoke out in protest by wearing black to the 2018 Golden Globe Awards.
The sartorial statement was somewhat controversial in the weeks leading up to the awards thanks to Rose McGowan—a vital voice in the #MeToo movement—speaking out against what she feels is a passive form of protest in a since-deleted tweet that said,"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa."
Despite this comment, multiple actresses involved in the #TimesUp Legal Defense Fund wore black to the Globes, including Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Helen Mirren, Nicole Kidman, and Reese Witherspoon. "What we are wearing is not a statement of fashion," Amber Tamblyn said of the movement. "It is a statement of action. It is a direct message of resistance. Black because we are powerful when we stand together with all women across industry lines. Black because we’re starting over, resetting the standard. Black because we’re done being silenced and we’re done with the silencers. Tonight is not a mourning. Tonight is an awakening."
