The color has Black has been the insignia of protests for ages, and at the 75th Golden Globes Awards, Hollywood embraced black to claim #TimesUp, a movement to protest the widespread sexual assault cancer that is finally being acknowledged by all.
#TimesUp is a legal and public movement against predatory workplace behaviour and in support of victims of sexual harassment, intended to provide a direction to the years of suffering, angst, frustration and depression that was vented out by victims last year. Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria, Meryl Streep and many other female celebrities are leading the #TimesUp movement from the front lines by opting for black attire.
Men, who usually wear black tuxedo’s to such events anyway have been provided with a special lapel pin reading #TimesUp to express their support and solidarity to the movement. So far, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Pattinson, James Franco, William. H. Macy, Gary Oldman andd many more male celebrities have been spotted sporting the #TimesUp lapel pin to join the movement.
