Golden Globes: Female actors to protest sexual harassment

Update : 15 Dec 2017, 09:36 PM
Major female actors – including presenters, nominees and guests – will all wear black at this year’s Golden Globes as a symbol of protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood, confirmed People magazine. According to sources at the People magazine, this protest will start at the Golden Globes and may extend throughout the award season. Many of the female actors have been vocal in rallying against sexual harassment since The New York Times broke a story regarding allegations against the famed producer Harvey Weinstein. Dozens, including Lupita Nyong’o, Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Roberts, have since then spoken out against the once-powerful film mogul. Salma Hayek even wrote an op-ed in the Times on Wednesday – calling Weinstein “a monster.” Following the revelation of sexual allegations against Weinstein, many other Hollywood figures were also accused of sexual assault, harassment and misconduct. The list includes actor Kevin Spacey, filmmaker Brett Ratner, comedian Louis CK, music producer Russell Simmons, actor Geoffrey Rush, director James Toback, actor Jeffrey Tambor, agent Adam Venit and others. The only other “all black dress” event in Hollywood’s history was the Emmys in 2001 which followed the September 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.
