Streep, other celebs to bring activists as Golden Globe guests

08 January 2018

With the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement in full effect on the red carpet, several of Hollywood's most powerful women showed up to the 75th Golden Globes with important activists by their side. "It's a moment to transform both the written and unwritten rules that devalue the lives and experiences of women". "We are participants in this entertainment industry, and we have something to say".

Streep, who is nominated this year for Best Actress - Drama for "The Post", will bring Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

- Saru Jayaraman, a workplace justice advocate for restaurant workers, will be Ms. Poehler's guest.

Meanwhile, Sarandon will bring activist and political commentator Rosa Clemente, Stone will be accompanied by former tennis pro and Women's Sport Foundation founder Billie Jean King, and Dern's plus-one will reportedly be immigration activist and Alianza Nacional de Campesinas co-founder Mónica Ramirez.

- Calina Lawrence, a Suquamish Tribe member, singer and activist for, among other causes, Native American treaty and water rights, will be going with Ms. Woodley.

Emma Watson will being Marai Larasi, the executive director of the UK-based black-feminist network organisation Imkaan, as well as being the co-chair of the End Violence Against Women Coalition. That was on October 29; within days, over a dozen men came forward to allege similar misconduct, and Scott announced he would reshoot Spacey's scenes and still release the film in December. Motorcycle officers cruised down the red carpet. "Every generation has to fight for equality and keep fighting for freedom forever", she said.

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.
