Activists join actresses on the Golden Globes red carpet

Meryl Streep

The darkened Golden Globes also coincide with the launch of Time's Up, a new initiative aiming to fight sexual harassment and assault in the workplace started by more than 300 Hollywood actresses.

Celebs like Emma Watson, Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Amy Poehler will be walking the carpet alongside women's rights activists in affiliation with the Time's Up campaign. She's the woman responsible for starting the #MeToo movement in 2006, which encourages women to show solidarity with each other, specifically when it comes to sexual harassment. 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.

Streep attended with Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance; Williams with Tarana Burke, the founder of the "me too" movement; and Watson with Marai Larasi, the executive director of Imkaan, a black-feminist organization. News' Ryan Seacrest, Meryl Streep said that the power of the #MeToo movement is that "people have become aware now of how power imbalance leads to abuse in our own industry" as well as among women in other industries, including working-class women employed as domestic workers. And Stone, who is nominated for "Battle of the Sexes" will attend with Billie Jean King, whom she portrayed in the film.

"We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work", the women said.




Sarandon's guest was organizer Rosa Clemente, founder of PR (Puerto Rico) On The Map.

Poehler's guest is Saru Jayaraman, president of Restaurant Opportunities Centers while Shailene Woodley is being accompanied by Suquamish Tribe member Calina Lawrence.

Previous Golden Globe victor and host Amy Poehler arrived on the red carpet with Jayaraman, co-founder and co-director of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United and director of the University of California at Berkeley Food Labor Research Center.
