The Time's Up sexual harassment prevention initiative launched January 1 by Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and other prominent Hollywood women includes, among other things, a legal defense fund for victims, legislative initiatives and a request that women wear black to the Golden Globes.

Susan Sarandon is joining her fellow actresses in bringing an activist as her date.

Seacrest's colleague Giuliana Rancic pointed at that tonight's protest necessitated some different red carpet rules, notably that she and other journalists aren't asking "Who are you wearing?" but "What are you wearing?"

"We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work".

Streep donned black as many of her colleagues did and brought National Domestic Workers Alliance Director Ai-jen Poo as her date for the evening. We do this work as participants in movements that seek to affirm the dignity and humanity of every person. "It's about solidarity, and what can be born of women speaking to each other, empowering ourselves", said Emma Watson, who attended with friend Marai Larasi, executive director of Imkaan, which the actress described as "an wonderful black feminist organization that fights violence against women and girls". Sarandon, who is nominated for her performance in FEUD: Bette and Joan, is bringing community organizer Rosa Clemente, who, as the Times reports, is "focused on political prisoners, voter engagement and Puerto Rican independence, and who also ran for vice president on the Green Party ticket in 2008".

And Shailene Woodley brought Calina Lawrence, a member of the Suquamish Tribe and an advocate for Native Treaty Rights, the Mni Wiconi movement and #NoLNG253 movement. She cofounded ROC in New York City after 9/11, together with displaced World Trade Center workers, which has organized those who work in restaurants to win workplace justice campaigns, conduct research and policy work, partner with responsible restaurants, and launch cooperatively owned restaurants. 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. It's now Emma's turn and her generation to do that.
