All the Women Who Went to the Golden Globes Together
Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria
Two of the powershouses behind the Time's Up movementp made a statement by taking each other as dates to the Golden Globe Awards. “This is not a moment, it’s a movement,” Longoria said on the red carpet at Sunday’s event. “Tonight is just one small part of that.”
The campaign resulted in hundreds of women in entertainment signing an impassioned open letter speaking out against sexual harassment, assault and inequality across all industries and launched the Legal Defense fund which has already made more than $15 million.
America Ferrera and Natalie Portman
America Ferrera, another prominent voice in the Time's Up movement, took Natalie Portman as her date to the Globes. "My gentlewoman of a date, @nportmanofficial came all the way to the door for me. How ladies do," Ferrera captioned a prom-like photo of the two on Instagram.
On the red carpet, Portman said: "It's just an incredible opportunity to get to go with a friend, an activist, someone who can have our voices together because we’ve been separated for so long. We’re used to be the only women in the workplace, we’re used to being one-at-a-time players and we realize how much louder and stronger our voices can be when we come together."
Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain
Both actresses, who starred together in The Help in 2011, have been extremely vocal about their support for the Time's Up movement on social media.
Gayle King, Orprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay
Oprah Winfrey was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at this year's Golden Globe Awards and on top of standing in solidarity by wearing an off-the-shoulder black gown, the television icon was joined by her female friends Gayle King and Ava DuVernay (director of Winfrey's next film A Wrinkle in Time) for the occasion.
Meryl Streep and Ai-jen Poo
Golden Globe Award nominee Meryl Streep brought an extra special person as her plus-one for the evening. The actress walked the red carpet with Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and co-director of the Caring Across Generations Campaign.
"We feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together in a thick black line dividing then from now," Streep said on the red carpet.
Michelle Williams and Tarana Burke
Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama nominee Michelle Williams appeared on the red carpet Sunday with #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, who opened up about the importance of women speaking out against sexual assault.
"This moment is so powerful because there is collaboration between these two worlds that people don’t put together," Burke said. "It’s really powerful to be on the red carpet tonight and people like Michelle to give up her time to talk about our causes.”
Salma Hayek and Ashley Judd
To stand as a united front at the Golden Globes, Salma Hayek and Ashley Judd -- two of the actresses who came forward and accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment -- attended the award show together in honor of the Time's Up movement.
Emma Stone and Billie Jean King
Emma Stone's nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her portrayal of Billie Jean King in Battle of the Sexes, so it's only fitting the star would bring the tennis legend herself as her date.
Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan
Saoirse Ronan, who's nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for Lady Bird, brought her fellow Globe nominee Greta Gerwig along as her date.
Loung Ung and Angelina Jolie
Sarah Paulson and Amanda Peet
Marai Larasi and Emma Watson
An activist in her own right, Emma Watson immediately knew she wanted to take co-chair of the End Violence Against Women Coalition Marai Larasi as her date to the Golden Globes when she heard other stars would be doing the same.
"When Michelle Williams spearheaded the idea of actresses bringing activists onto the red carpet, my first thought was it was be so great to do with Marai," she said. "We’ve been working together this last year. She’s absolutely incredible. She’s the executive director of Imkaan, which is a black feminist organization that fights against violence in women and girls. And I’m very happy to have her here tonight just to amplify, amplify, amplify."
Rosa Clemente and Susan Sarandon
To support the Time's Up initiative, nominee Susan Sarandon joined a group of other celebrities who took women activists as dates by bringing political commentator and journalist Rosa Clemente to the show.
Clemente wrote on her Facebook page, “I’m proud to be representing over 2.5M domestic workers at the#GoldenGlobes today- the nannies, housecleaners, & home care workers who do the work that makes all other work possible, & face harassment & abuse behind closed doors.”
Monica Ramirez and Laura Dern
Golden Globe winner Laura Dern also brought along a female activist as her date for the award show -- she was accompanied by Monica Ramirez, the woman behind the Letter of Solidarity in Time magazine in November.
"I reached out to her to say that she stood with all the 700,000 women farm workers in solidarity for the women in our industry who were brave enough to speak out about sexual harassment and assault," Dern said on the red carpet.
Amy Poeher and Saru Jayaraman
Comedian and presenter Amy Poehler had Saru Jayaraman, co-founder of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, join her at the Golden Globe Awards to raise awareness for fair wages and safe workplaces for restaurant workers.
"Here in honor of the women servers, bussers, bartenders, runners, cooks, & hosts who experience the highest rates of sexual harassment of any industry in the country. #GoldenGlobes #TIMESUP #MeToo #1FairWage @OneFairWageNY," Jayaraman tweeted.
Laurie Metcalf and Zoe Perry
