Some of our favorite stars attended the Golden Globes in varying styles of gorgeous black dresses. This choice was the celebs' way of protesting against the wave of sexual harassment that is rampant in Hollywood.
In the past year, the world's attention has been drawn to the heartbreaking stories of women being taken advantage of in the industry. Famous names, such as Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer, have brought to the forefront the issue of women being intimidated, assaulted, and harassed in the industry.

Supporting the cause
Celebrities have long used the red carpet to express their support for causes that matter to them. Emma Stone wore a Planned Parenthood pin on her dress at the Oscar, while Amber Rose once donned a bodysuit emblazoned with terms such as “hoe” and “golddigger" to kick against slut shaming.
In fact, this protest dressing goes back decades ago. In 1972, Jane Fonda wore a black Yves Saint Laurent suit in support of the anti-Vietnam War statement.
One question on everyone's lips is whether this trend will be prevalent at the Academy Awards scheduled to take place in March. We will see.
