Actresses will reportedly wear black at Golden Globes to protest gender inequality

The arresting visual image of women stalking the red carpet in couture widow's weeds will certainly be impactful, along the lines of the House Democratic Women's Working Group's decision to wear suffragette white to President Donald Trump's speech to the joint members of Congress in February or the rallying cry of the pussy hat at the Women's March in January.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, industry insiders have been trying to figure out how best to acknowledge the #MeToo movement. On the popular internet morning show, The Morning Breath, hosts Jackie Oshry and Claudia Oshry were able to reveal (thanks to the noted approval of their publicist) that a large number of women attending the 2018 Golden Globes are opting to wear black to protest sexual assault.

"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. Several sources also confirmed the report to People magazine. Plus, each and every red carpet interviewer will ask about the dress, which will lead to a conversation about Hollywood's sexual harassment and assault problem on one of the world's biggest stages.

Erdogan: Turkey to try to annul Trump's Jerusalem decision at UN
Trump's move has ignited protests across the Muslim world and deadly violence in the Occupied Territories. We are launching new initiatives at the United Nations for the annulment of the U.S. decision.

The outpouring of stories detailing sexual harassment, abuse and rape at the hands of Hollywood's most powerful men, paved the way for a social media movement which sought to give a voice to women who have fallen victim to a culture weighted in favour of men.

TBH, extremely excited for a sea of black on the red carpet this year.

Notable actresses reportedly participating in wearing an all-black ensemble include Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Helen Mirren, Nicole Kidman, and Reese Witherspoon.
