Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, Laura Dern To Be Accompanied by Activists at Golden Globes
Published to Variety on January 7, 2018
In addition to the #whywewearblack campaign at this year’s Golden Globes, numerous Hollywood women have adopted another way to express their support for particular issues, including women’s rights and racial equality, by bringing activists to the Golden Globes as their guests.
According to a press release, the women were inspired by the Time’s Up movement, an initiative launched by hundreds of Hollywood women to advocate better workplace conditions and the end of sexual harassment.
Emma Stone will be accompanied by Billie Jean King, the pro tennis player and activist that Stone portrays in “Battle of the Sexes.” In addition to founding the Women’s Sports Foundation and the Women’s Tennis Association, King has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and is the founder of the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative.
