The Golden Globes nominee wore black.

The women of Time's Up, the official Hollywood initiative to combat sexual harassment both within and beyond the entertainment industry, picked the dress code, encouraging men and women to wear black as a symbol of solidarity with those combating sexual harassment, discrimination, and assault.

In their joint red carpet interview, King spoke before Stone.

Streep - who has been heavily criticized for her response to the allegations against her longtime collaborator Harvey Weinstein - will bring along National Domestic Workers Alliance director and 2014 MacArthur fellow Aj-jen Poo, according to Variety.

Laura Dern The "Big Little Lies" actress said on Instagram that she is "holding our mothers and grandmothers and all fearless women who taught us about Voice" by wearing black on the red carpet.

"We are really coming together to say, "time's up" on the imbalance of power everywhere".

The 75th Golden Globes red carpet may end up becoming a bigger deal than the actual awards ceremony itself. Inviting organizers is a savvy way to pass the microphone to those advocating for marginalized women outside the Hollywood bubble.

"Really, the most exciting thing is I thought I'd have to raise my daughter to learn to protect herself in a unsafe world". She is also the co-director of Caring Across Generations campaign. "Although it's not going to solve all the problems, I'm proud to be here and to be part of it today", said the "Handmaid's Tale" star.

"Tonight is about women wearing the trousers, so I'm literally wearing the trousers", the "GLOW" star said on the red carpet. "It's important to me to stand with all of the women who have come forward", Brie said, wearing a black ensemble in honor of Time's Up and the #MeToo movement. King's activism is wide-reaching; she founded the Women's Sports Foundation, the Women's Tennis Association, and the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative.

"Every generation has to fight for equality and keep trying to fight for freedom forever so it's now Emma's turn to do that and her generation".

The special plus-ones afforded the women an opportunity to keep questions on the carpet about issues.

"I think we've realized the scope of what we've lost, the creative contributions of people who are been pushed out of the industry, women like Mia Sorvino and other industries and the contributions we have lost because of that and also the pain of course that they've been through", she said.
