The Golden Globes black dress protest

Black-dress.jpg

There was one notable thing missing at this year’s Golden Globes: An array of colorful dresses.

That’s because Hollywood stars were using the event to raise awareness of sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry by wearing all black. Many of the speeches by award winners were centered around this topic.

In the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, it was Hollywood’s response to the slew of sexual misconduct allegations against high profile figures in the entertainment industry, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Dustin Hoffman.

But not everyone was impressed by the show of solidarity at the Golden Globes.

Rose McGowan, one of the first actresses to come forward with her personal story, was not acknowledged by any of the Golden Globe winners or attendees. Neither was Ashley Judd, another early accuser.

McGowan tweetedundefined, “And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, [email protected] #RoseArmy

In October, McGowan accused Harvey Weinstein of rape. She also alleged that Amazon Studios dropped her after she made a complaint.
