According to the Hollywood Reporter, sources suggest that at the Golden Globes, actresses, including nominees and presenters, are planning to wear black to protest gender inequality.

Sources have also confirmed the news to People, specifying that the participants "wearing black gowns" will include female presenters and nominees.

The previous president, Angel Maria Villar, resigned from the position after he was arrested on corruption charges back in July. Even though he is only a stand-in, Larrea has made clear he wants to see out Villar's term, which was due to end in 2020.

The prominent show of solidarity was originally planned among a small group of actresses, but as word spread through the industry, at least 30 actresses have said they plan to participate, Us reported. "All the stylists who already did fittings are now changing out their clients' original picks for Globes (potentially shifting those dresses to the SAG Awards or other carpets)". The #MeToo movement, which began with accusations surrounding Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, has opened the door for women (both inside and outside of Hollywood) to publicly share their experiences with sexual harassment and assault. Maybe not. If actresses have to go to the Golden Globes to smile big for the cameras and speak to Giuliana Rancic about who they're wearing, answering the question of why they're wearing what they are could prove to be much more interesting. Some of these actresses will be walking the red carpet, others presenting, and some who have earned a nomination and may win in their category.

Amid the onslaught of sexual assault allegations which have been breaking left and right throughout the year, the actresses in Hollywood are taking a very visible and pointed stand against the ubiquitous issue of sexual violence.
