The 2018 Golden Globes wasn’t just about wearing pretty dresses this year. Many women took a stand for race and gender inequality. One of the matters being sexual assault as society has normalized it for years. They wore black in solidarity with all of those who have been sexually harassed and/or assaulted as well as the racial issues we still face.
The #MeToo movement has given a lot of victims the courage to speak up about their unfortunate experiences thus shedding light on this very serious matter; showing people that it has directly affected so much more individuals than what is perceived. I commend all of those who speak out against this publicly as victims have suffered in silence for years (some even suffered for decades), not speaking up due to fear of being ridiculed, chastised and blacklisted from their professions. While it’s not easy for victims to speak up on these terrible experiences, at least they know that during this time, more support is provided for this matter.
From Tracee Ellis Ross sporting a beautiful black satin gown and gele to Viola Davis’ accessorizing her gown with her beautiful afro, here are my picks for the best dressed at the 75th Annual Golden Globes!
