It’s no secret that women (and men) are intending to use the Golden Globes this Sunday to make a huge statement about the culture of sexual abuse and harassment that has been rampant in Hollywood for so many years. In 2017, we saw many of the industry’s biggest names either come forward to share stories of being harassed or get taken down by floods of accusations about their harassing behavior.
Many stars attending the Golden Globes have been planning for weeks to wear black to the show in solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment. But since a large group of A-listers — including Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Aniston, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Rashida Jones — launched the #TIMESUP movement in the New York Times, there are even more actions being planned.
According to People magazine, Witherspoon worked with a stylist and costume designer to create a “Time’s Up” pin to be worn on the red carpet and at the Golden Globes. People reports that more than 500 of the pins have been created so far.
In addition to rocking their pins, Witherspoon and Longoria plan to walk the red carpet together to support the movement.
“This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment,” Longoria told the New York Times. “For years, we’ve sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This time the industry can’t expect us to go up and twirl around. That’s not what this moment is about.”
