There's something to be said about having strength in numbers, and the women of Hollywood certainly seem to understand that they're stronger together than apart. Adopting the same wardrobe color scheme allowed women to showcase their common belief that sexual misconduct in the industry must end—and that they are beyond ready to march onward toward gender equality.
"I wear black today as a 'we' not as an 'I,' as a celebration of our collective power as women, as an embodiment of sisterhood, solidarity and the work being done to create structural change," Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross explained (via People). "We wear black for equity, parity and inclusion across all industries. We wear black to join with the voices of ALL women, particularly women of color, LGBTQX women, disabled women and all other women who have been disproportionately affected by sexual violence."
But, of course, women weren't the only stars to wear all black at the Golden Globes. Many men also donned black in support of their colleagues. "Because everyone keeps asking me… YES, the men WILL be standing in solidarity with women on this wearing-all-black movement to protest against gender inequality at this year's Golden Globes," celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinanti shared on Instagram, noting, "Safe to say this may not be the right time to choose to be the odd man out here."
