It's in the military, it's in Congress, it's everywhere. "And it's the same thing with here in Puerto Rico, we want to be treated equally".

Janney added, "I'm wearing black to stand with every man and women out here in Hollywood to stand-up for people, mostly women, who have been sexually abused, assaulted or harassed and made them feel unsafe at workplace and who have been held back due to their sex".

Emma Watson will being Marai Larasi, the executive director of the UK-based black-feminist network organisation Imkaan, as well as being the co-chair of the End Violence Against Women Coalition.

"When Michelle Williams spearheaded the idea of actresses bringing activists on the red carpet, my first thought was it would be so great to do it with Marai", Watson shared with E! "We're here because Tarana started a movement and she planted a seed years ago and it's grown and caught fire".

Calina Lawrence, a singer and member of the Suquamish Tribe who has worked as an advocate for water and Native American treaty rights, will attend with Shailene Woodley, who is nominated for "Big Little Lies".

Would you pay 25p extra for your morning coffee to cut waste?
The Committee stated that this type of cups should be banned unless the recycling target is met. A group of British MPs is calling for tougher action on disposable coffee cups.

Emma Stone will bring former pro tennis player and activist Billie Jean King, who she obviously portrayed in Battle of the Sexes. The launch was spawned in part by a letter of support Hollywood women received from female farm workers, and the defense fund that has raised $15 million to date is not only for victims of sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry, but in all sectors. Hollywood stars are wearing black to speak out against sexual harassment in the workplace, and it's not just about matters in Hollywood. Each of us has dedicated our lives to doing work that supports the least visible, most vulnerable women in the nation.

"Each of us will be highlighting legislative, community-level and interpersonal solutions that contribute to ending violence against women in all our communities", the advocates' statement said Sunday.

Also, like CarterMatt on Facebook to get more updates on this show and some others we cover.

The statement says that women of color should be at the center of the solutions.

The #WhyWeWearBlack campaign is in full effect tonight ahead of the Golden Globe Awards, with actresses taking a unified stand in hopes to spark a larger discussion regarding the exploitation of those in Hollywood by powerful men.
