Eight actresses sick of their spouses, the loved or tolerated significant other, or just “not in a relationship” brought gender and racial justice activists as their guests to the Golden Globe Awards Sunday evening.
When asked why, TPV was told this was part of an effort to shift the focus back on survivors and solutions, and away from perpetrators of sexual misconduct. Some said that feeling guilty that they had not been hit on, Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Emma Watson, Susan Sarandon, and Amy Poehler took the lead in escorting the activists to the night out.
Surprised by the sudden attention, the advocates, said,
Oh, my god! The Moet Chandon Champagne, the selfies, the sudden free clothes rental, all of it was just a blast. Thank you Hollywood! Please keep up the work so even we, the unseen part of the feminist movement, can bathe in attention every century or so.
While the initiative vowed support for women in the entertainment business and beyond, from janitors to health care workers, the only janitors in attendance were the ones at work.
