If you are living in the cave, woman empowerment has been the talk of the town lately among celebrities and the social media universe. The hashtag #MeToo was first created by Tarana Burke, revived on social media in October 2017 by Alyssa Milano after Harvey Weinstein’s decades of bad behaviour caught up with him. From this incident, not only many celebrities came out and expose Weinstein’s dark side, rather the people started noticing and taking into account the situation and bringing awareness into a new movement called Time’s Up.

However, to ensure this issue is fully addressed out, what better way to showcase the support and awareness from celebrities than the most watched fashion moments of all time. Yes, the red carpets. As intended, the 2018 Golden Globes served as a powerful platform for the Time’s Up movement, formed just weeks ago and already endorsed by hundreds of the entertainment industry’s biggest names in response to the overwhelming number of women and men from all walks of life who have come forward over the past few months to share their experiences about being sexually harassed, assaulted or otherwise mistreated. Some showed their support even more by wearing a Time’s Up pin attached to them.
This year’s Golden Globe red carpet composed of stars who chose to wear black as a show of solidarity—with each other, and with everyone who deserves to be treated with dignity and respect but has spent a shameful amount of time suffering in silence. Celebrities even brought an activist from a various organisation as their date for the Golden Globes.
The celebrities dazzled in their black dresses and outfit while coming together as one, now that is black-tiful.
The choice for the award as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award can’t go to a perfect person than Oprah Winfrey. While accepting the award, her speech made three standing ovations. THREE!
” I want all the girls watching to know that a new day is on the horizon and when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women and phenomenal men who are fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me too” again.” -Oprah Winfrey-
