Time's Up organizers Meryl Streep, Amy Poehler and Michelle Williams, who attended with #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, all wore black on the carpet.

Streep told E!'s Ryan Seacrest that now, people are "aware" of a power imbalance which "leads to abuse". "It's about solidarity, and what can be born of women speaking to each other, empowering ourselves", said Emma Watson, who attended with friend Marai Larasi, executive director of Imkaan, which the actress described as "an wonderful black feminist organization that fights violence against women and girls".

Streep donned black as many of her colleagues did and brought National Domestic Workers Alliance Director Ai-jen Poo as her date for the evening.

As The Blast reported, some of Hollywood's biggest female stars will walk the red carpet with women by their sides. She added, "We're saying enough is enough".

As part of a continued campaign inspired by the Time's Up movement, these Hollywood A-listers are committing to amplifying voices in the fight for women's rights and racial equality. Jayaraman is the co-founder and co-director of the Restaurant Opportunities Center United and director of the Food Labor Research Center at UC Berkeley.

"That's the future, and we have momentum, and we want to say to everyone that they should join us", she explained.

Woodley is set to bring Calina Lawrence, a Suquamish Tribe member and activist for Native American treaty and water rights.

Susan Sarandon will bring Rosa Clemente, an organiser, political commentator and journalist who campaigns for media justice and voter engagement among youth of colour.

Billie Jean King, the tennis champion who founded the Women's Tennis Association, will accompany Stone, who is up for a Globe for her portrayal of King in the film Battle Of The Sexes.
