Celebs Gift Golden Globes 2018 With Presence of Accomplished Activists

In honor of the Time’s Up initiative to end sexual harassment, Amy Poehler, Laura Dern, Susan Sarandon, Meryl Streep, Emma Watson, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, and Michelle Williams will attend the Golden Globes 2018 with some of the most accomplished activists of our time. Time’s Up is meant to draw awareness to the most marginalized women in our society.

The eight activists issued a joint statement just before the event.

“We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work,” they wrote. “It’s a moment to transform both the written and unwritten rules that devalue the lives and experiences of women.”

These activists include:

Tarana Burke, senior director of Girls for Gender Equity and founder of #MeToo

Rosa Clemente, a human rights activist and Green Party member, and Marai Larasi, executive director of U.K. organization Imkaan, which works to protect women of color against abuse

Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance

Mónica Ramírez, an activist for female farmworkers and the Latina community

Calina Lawrence, an activist for the Native American people

Saru Jayaraman, an Indian American attorney and Co-Founder of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United

Billie Jean King, founder of the Women’s Tennis Association

This year’s Golden Globes will be hosted by Seth Meyers. Catch it on NBC at 5 p.m. PST.
