All black

Saoirse Ronan has confirmed that she will be one of many actresses donning and all black ensemble at the Golden Globe awards this weekend.

The women of Hollywood have pledged to wear the sombre shade in solidarity with their fellow actresses who have been the victims of sexual assault and harassment.

The star told Extra that fans will be seeing a sea of black on the usually colourful red carpet.

‘I’ve never felt so encouraged and inspired and supported to use whatever voice I have and for all of these people, men and women, to be able come together and use their influence and to open up the conversation and raise awareness and support anyone who's gone through, or anyone that has questioned their safety or their stance when they’re on set,’ she told Extra.

‘I think it’s invaluable and paramount that this happens now.’

The choice to wear black will highlight the fact that the recent outpouring of sexual abuse reports in Hollywood is neither acceptable nor to be tolerated.

'All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns,' a source told PEOPLE previously.

We're looking forward to seeing all of the striking black gowns over the weekend. 


In recent months, a number of very brave women and men have come forward in order to shine a light on the entertainment industry's shameful and hugely misogynistic underbelly.

The outpouring of stories detailing sexual harassment, abuse and rape at the hands of Hollywood's most powerful men, paved the way for a social media movement which sought to give a voice to women who have fallen victim to a culture weighted in favour of men.

In an attempt to acknowledge this, industry insiders have been been discussing the ways in which they can pay tribute to these victims, and recent reports suggest it may come down to outfit choice at the Golden Globes in January.

"All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns,” a source told PEOPLE in response to rumours that female stars were planning to challenge the current status quo.

Choosing to wear a black ensemble will reportedly act as a symbol of protest against sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood, and ties in with the #AskHerMore movement which seeks to remind the media that female stars are capable of discussing more than 'who they're wearing' on the red carpet.

"AskHerMore is fundamentally about treating women as full human beings rather than objects," documentary filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom explains. "And I think #MeToo is about the same thing."

"I hope red carpet interviewers ask about the power the media has to make a difference in the world, how those involved in creating it can set a better example and the importance of broadening who gets to have a say in creating that media."

The reports come following an announcement that next year's Screen Actor's Guild Awards will feature an all-female presenting panel.
