“The contemporary woman is strong, open, straightforward and black is the color of her powerful soul”.
At the first biggest event of 2018, the 75th Golden Globe Awards, there emerged a brand new approach to the red carpet. It was painted all black by the gutsy Hollywood celebs who took a stance against the sexual harassment on women in the industry and everywhere around the world, hoping nobody has to say ‘#me too’ again.
‘Feminism ‘was last year’s most googled word and that explains it all, the weather has changed and the ‘Timesup’. Hollywood celebs turn the Golden Globe award’s red carpet into something more than just a fashionable night. These modern age stalwarts send a solid message to the world as they walk fiercely in ‘BLACK’.
Time’s Up is a movement against sexual harassment founded in 2006 originally but resurfaced again in response to the Weinstein effect and #MeToo.
Earlier, in last year; campaigns on social media, #Me too and #Timesup received a huge response and so these pioneers decided’ the time is now’ to instigate change and thus revamped the red carpet into a platform to do something about it. The Phenomenal Oprah Winfrey gave a very inspiring and empowering speech to women as she became the first African American woman to receive The annual Cecil B De-Mille award. The most renowned female, as well as male figures of the Hollywood industry, unified here to mark this day with new vigor for transformation.
The color black was a symbol of protest against the unequal treatment and harassment of women in the industry and this global event was an impactful medium for the women in Hollywood to connect to women everywhere and motivate them to break their silence. When questioned curiously about why they were wearing black, their impelling answers made us realize that each one of us is born worthy and speaking the truth is a powerful instrument to fight the battle against injustice.
