Actresses are reportedly planning to wear black to the Golden Globes to protest gender inequality, and acknowledge the flood of sexual misconduct allegations that have come out of the film and TV industry in recent months.

U.S. magazine People claims that several sources have told them actresses will make a statement against the culture of sexual misconduct in their industry, which has dominated the news agenda since the revelations against Harvey Weinstein emerged earlier this year.

"Many actresses have been vocal about their own experiences of sexual harassment or assault, joining the national "#MeToo" movement exposing incidents of sexual misconduct.

Sources have also confirmed the news to People, specifying that the participants "wearing black gowns" will include female presenters and nominees. Some sources said that while it could begin at the January 7 award show, the protest could continue throughout awards season.

It should be noted that, earlier this week, it was announced that all the presenters at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will take place on January 21, will be women. Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Emma Stone are all up for an award, so we may well see them all dressed in the same color. According to People, all actresses attending the Golden Globes 2018 will be wearing black.

It's a safe bet that numerous women who will be attending the ceremony this year will be donning all black.

Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K. Much will certainly be said about the numerous scandals, on the red carpet and onstage at the Golden Globes ceremony.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, you can visit RAINN or call its hotline at 1-800-656-4673 to receive confidential support from a trained staff member.
