A-list actresses bring activists to Golden Globes red carpet

Streep, Williams, Emma Watson and other prominent women also arrived accompanied by women's rights activists - in order to show that the Time's Up initiative is about more than advocating for the rights of privileged women in Hollywood, but for women in general.

Host Seth Meyers even brought attention to the activists in the room during his opening monologue. Sarandon will be bringing along Rosa Clemente, who has campaigned for voter engagement among youth of color, third party politics, United States political prisoners, the rights of Puerto Rico to become an independent nation, and media justice.

Emma Watson was accompanied by Marai Larasi, executive director of Imkaan, a British network of organizations working to end violence against black and minority women.

Michelle Williams brought Tarana Burke, the founder of #metoo. Streep was just as gracious to Clarkson, greeting her with an affectionate hug and kiss on the cheek, holding her hand as they chat for a few moments on the carpet. "We're saying women in Hollywood have an opportunity to amplify the issue and shine a light on things".

We're not going to ban Donald Trump
Trump's tweet about the US" nuclear arsenal has now received over 485,000 "Likes' and more than 190,000 retweets. We work hard to remain unbiased with the public interest in mind.

Emma Stone brought the woman she played in the film "Battle of the Sexes" - tennis legend Billie Jean King. Poehler is with Sary Jayaraman, who advocates for restaurant workers; Dern is taking Mónica Ramírez, a Latina empowerment activism who focuses on sexual violence against farmworkers.

Additionally, both actors and actresses will wear specially-made "Times's Up" lapel pins in an effort to raise awareness of the newly-created Time's Up initiative, which seeks to provide legal funds and representation to women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted in the workplace. "Every generation has to fight for equality and keep fighting for freedom forever", she said. It's now Emma's turn and her generation to do that.

Laura Dern's guest was Monica Ramirez, the co-founder and president of the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas. We have each dedicated our lives to doing work that supports the least visible, most marginalized women in our diverse contexts.
