Stars to walk Golden Globes red carpet with activists

Stars to walk Golden Globes red carpet with activists

The Time's Up sexual harassment prevention initiative launched January 1 by Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and other prominent Hollywood women includes, among other things, a legal defense fund for victims, legislative initiatives and a request that women wear black to the Golden Globes.

Emma Stone brought the woman she played in the film "Battle of the Sexes" - tennis legend Billie Jean King.

While award show red carpets used to be filled with answers to the question, "Who are you wearing?" this year, actresses largely used their time at the microphone to advance their causes.

That was the case with Meryl Streep, who arrived on the red carpet with Ai-jen Poo, executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance. "It's a moment to transform both the written and unwritten rules that devalue the lives and experiences of women".

The lower the pressure, the stronger the storm - which means that bomb-ranked storms can conjure up devastating wintry conditions. Winter Storm Warnings have been issued across the Florida Big Bend and south central Georgia areas.

"We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work", they wrote.

Woodley is set to bring Calina Lawrence, a Suquamish Tribe member and activist for Native American treaty and water rights.

From #MeToo creator Tarana Burke to activist Monica Ramirez, check out who the stars brought along to the show.

Susan Sarandon brought activist Rosa Clemente, who is the president and founder of Know Thy Self Productions, which has produced community activism tours and consults on issues such as hip-hop activism, media justice and voter engagement, according to Clemente's website.

HP Issues Recall For Laptop Batteries Amid Fire Risk
HP said the affected batteries have either been sold as part of the laptop package or separately as accessories. HP is offering free battery replacement service to users with an affected model, regardless of warranty status.

Michelle Williams showed up with #MeToo movement founder and civil rights activist Tarana Burke - who is also the senior director of the nonprofit Girls for Gender Equity.

Williams is nominated for her role in All The Money In The World.

In their joint red carpet interview, King spoke before Stone. The launch was spawned in part by a letter of support Hollywood women received from female farm workers, and the defense fund that has raised $15 million to date is not only for victims of sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry, but in all sectors.
