Actresses to wear black at awards to protest sexual harassment

This will not be the first time actors and actresses have expressed their solidarity towards a cause by way of their sartorial choices.

United States magazine People claims that several sources have told them actresses will make a statement against the culture of sexual misconduct in their industry, which has dominated the news agenda since the revelations against Harvey Weinstein emerged earlier this year.

Here are the empowering changes we know of so far.

The proposed move comes after a decision by the Screen Actors Guild to use only female presenters at their awards show.

The Good Place star Kristen Bell will host the awards show which SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell says will pay tribute to women. It's been reported that actresses will continue to take a stand by wearing black dresses on the red carpet.

The source added, "This movement is spreading rampantly and pretty much all the nominated women and others attending are participating". "Women stepped forward in such a huge way in this past year".

Since the spark of the #MeToo hashtag on social media, women who have suffered from similar experiences have shone a light on mistreatment not only in Hollywood, but everywhere.

According to People, multiple sources have confirmed that "major actresses" and nominees, including Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain and Meryl Streep will forgo colourful gowns and wear all-black ensembles "as a symbol of protest against harassment in Hollywood".

It's not yet known if Australians Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman, who are both nominated for Golden Globe Awards, will be joining the protest.

"All of the female actresses and attendees, or majority at least, who are going to the Golden Globes, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest".

Sources say that this will start at the Golden Globes on January 7, though it may extend throughout award season.
