2. The Activists Who Came As Plus Ones
To give the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements even more well-deserved recognition, eight stars brought activists as their plus ones to the awards show!
Actresses Laura Dern, Amy Poehler, Susan Sarandon, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Michelle Williams and Shailene Woodley were accompanied by activists in a range of fields. “We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work,” they said in a statement. “It’s a moment to transform both the written and unwritten rules that devalue the lives and experiences of women.”
