Actresses to wear black at Golden Globes to protest sexual harassment

Multiple sources are reporting that presenters and nominees will wear all-black outfits as a symbol of protest against sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood at the awards ceremony on January 7th.

Following the raised awareness in Hollywood over sexual harassment and gender inequality, industry insiders are now trying to figure out how best to acknowledge the #MeToo movement during awards season in 2018, starting with the Golden Globes.

Many of the Hollywood actresses talked publically against sexual harassment since the story about allegations against famed producer Harvey Weinstein broke out.

The show's presenters have yet to be announced, but some female nominees include Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon and Octavia Spencer.

On Thursday, The Morning Breath reported that actresses will protest by dressing in black at the awards show, which takes place on January 7. Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Emma Stone are all up for an award, so we may well see them all dressed in the same color.

The protest against sexual assault is also expected to extend past the red carpet during awards season with Kevin Spacey's award already being revoked and Harvey Weinstein being removed by BAFTA after both faced allegations.

"All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns", a source told PEOPLE in response to rumours that female stars were planning to challenge the current status quo. Some of these actresses will be walking the red carpet, others presenting, and some who have earned a nomination and may win in their category.
