Actresses Wearing Black at Golden Globes To Protest Sexual Harassment

Actresses Will Wear Black to Protest Gender Inequality and Sexual Harassment for 2018 Golden Globes

At next month's Golden Globes, the red carpet will reportedly get much, much darker: A large group of actresses are set to dress entirely in black as a way of silently protesting harassment and assault in Hollywood.

Many actresses have spoke out about the issue ever since news broke about the sexual misconduct of Harvey WEinstein.

Meryl Streep has spent decades pretty much being the most un-slammable celebrity in Hollywood - unless you include Donald Trump's searing insight into the actresses' acting prowess - but Rose McGowan is now taking aim at Streep for what she considers to be her hypocritical stance regarding Harvey Weinstein.

'You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change, ' McGowan said, adding, 'I despise your hypocrisy'. "Maybe you should all wear Marchesa", McGowan continued, referring to the fashion line designed by Weinstein's estranged wife, Georgina Chapman.

Harvey Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan took to Twitter during the weekend, attacking actresses who will wear black at the upcoming Golden Globes.

However, not everyone thinks this "silent protest" is enough.

Rose McGowan has publicly admonished the planned silent protest at this year's Golden Globes as "hypocrisy". When asked by Extra if she was planning to wear black, the 68-year-old actress didn't give an answer. "The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes", Streep said back in October.

"The behaviour is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar". In response to Streep's comments about Weinstein that his actions were "the most gargantuan example of disrespect" in early December, Rose tweeted, "No, Meryl, IT'S A FUCKING CRIME".

'Each fearless voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game, ' Streep said.

But, McGowan - who was one of the first women to come forward with rape allegations against Weinstein - is not impressed.

He has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
