In addition to the various silent protests such as wearing black or a Time's Up pin, some of the most successful women in the entertainment industry will reportedly be bringing activists rather than significant others as dates in order to show support for those affected by sexual harassment and assault.

Celebs like Emma Watson, Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Amy Poehler will be walking the carpet alongside women's rights activists in affiliation with the Time's Up campaign. As Hollywood comes together to honour 2017's best actors, directors and more, there is no avoiding the elephant in the room: The Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment cases and the several others that followed.

Meryl Streep will bring Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and co-director of the Caring Across Generations Campaign. "This movement is more powerful because we're seeing. a collaboration between these two worlds that people don't usually put together".

"Tonight is about women wearing the trousers, so I'm literally wearing the trousers", the "GLOW" star said on the red carpet. "Domestic workers know the power of organizing and see this moment of unity among women across industries as a turning point for our movement end sexual harassment and violence once and for all".

Michelle Williams will bring Burke, the founder of #metoo and a woman who has campaigned for gender and racial justice for decades.
