The Golden Globe Awards show might look a little different this year. While stars typically walk the red carpet in gowns of all vibrant colors, this year, many of the women in attendance will reportedly wear black for one empowering reason.
According to the web series The Morning Breath, a number of female actors are planning on wearing a black dress to the January 7 broadcast as a means to protest sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry—occurrences of which have dominated the news cycle as of late.
The world got a peek into what happens behind closed doors from the women who spoke out against Harvey Weinstein (in recent damning exposés in The New Yorker and The New York Times) and other predators as well, but the systemic problem is far from being solved—and #bossbabes are continuing to take a stand, together, this time in black. Although this black-tie movement started with just a handful of women, now as many as 30 are participating, according to Us Weekly.

“This movement is spreading rampantly, and pretty much all the nominated women and others attending are participating,” an insider told the magazine. “All the stylists who already did fittings are now changing out their clients’ original picks for Globes.”
No names of participants have been revealed as of yet, but there are plenty of women who would make a big impact if they took part—and seeing them come together for this powerful purpose would help “progress” prevail as the lead award winner at the show.
