If the first week of this year is anything to go by, 2018 is going to kick the patriarchy’s butt! The first major Hollywood event of the year, the Golden Globes, was dominated by girl gangs, sassy one-liners, on-point outfit coordination, inspiring speeches and two simple words; time’s up.
Following on from the #MeToo campaign last year, when women around the world told their stories of harassment and abuse, the Time’s Up movement is determined to put an end to gender inequality in the workplace. Launched on January 1st, the movement took to Instagram with the motto: “Time’s up on silence. Time’s up on waiting. Time’s up on tolerating discrimination, harassment, and abuse.” A majority of the women and some men wore black to the Golden Globes to raise awareness for this campaign.
This was no ordinary Hollywood awards night. It was a message to the world; change is coming. Here are our fave moments from the night, proving that girl power will rule 2018:
