At the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, Hollywood's leading ladies made a powerful statement to wear black on the red carpet. "For years, we’ve sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment," Eva Longoria told the New York Times.
The decision promoted the Time's Up movement, created by hundreds of women in Hollywood with a mission to end sexual harassment and inequality in the workplace. The initiative has already raised over $15 million for a legal defense fund to help those who can't afford to fight cases on their own.

Eva Longoria with date Reese Witherspoon.
"This is not a moment. This is a movement, and tonight is just one small part of that," Longoria told Carson Daly of the Time's Up initiative during a red carpet interview.
She also called out E! to its face over their refusal to pay Catt Sadler a salary equal to male colleague Jason Kennedy. “We support gender equity and equal pay,” Longoria told Ryan Seacrest. “And we hope that E! follows that lead with Catt as well. We stand with you, Catt.”
America Ferrera with date Natalie Portman.
"It’s so incredible to look around and see everyone in solidarity, ready to really address the issues that exist in our industry and across all industries,” Ferrera said on the red carpet according to People. “It’s our job — right now, the time is now — for us to do the work that will make women and all people more safe and more equal in their workplaces and in their lives.”
Salma Hayek with date Ashley Judd.
Nothing said #TimesUp like Hayek attending the show with her "Frida" costar after her blistering op-ed for the New York Times where she exposed Harvey Weinstein. She also led the attendees into cheering "time's up" while introducing the Best Motion Picture Drama nominee "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," which is about a mother seeking justice for her daughter who was raped and murdered.
Carey, who supported the movement on social media, was nominated for co-writing the title track of "The Star," and let Al Roker know the empowering reason why she was especially excited for the honor, win or lose. "Many times men forget that women also write songs and I’m really excited about it because of that."
