Date February 13, 2018 13:22

The Golden Globes this year was a mostly all-black affair. Celebrities presented a united front by shunning other colors. This ongoing position as it were, was not informed by a fashion fad, but by far more pressing matters.

For months now, Hollywood and most of America has been inundated by stories of sexual assault and harassment. For starters, the floodgates seemed to break open following accusations against the renowned producer, Harvey Weinstein.

Now, hardly a day passes without some new celebrity being mentioned as complicit in a sexual harassment episode.
