2018’s Golden Globe Awards Addresses Sexual Harassment


Oprah Winfrey shared similar statements:

For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up!

Criticisms Against Hollywood

Despite the Golden Globe Awards’ acknowledgement of sexual harassment, Hollywood has still faced criticism, as previously noted. Many Americans believe that both men and women within Hollywood knew what was happening and willfully covered it up or turned a blind eye. Critics have also affirmed that those who knew what was happening and chose not to speak up are just as guilty as the sexual abusers.

Many of the Golden Globe Awards’ participants also wore black on Sunday. This occurred to support the fairly new “Time’s Up” movement. “Time’s Up” aims to address, tackle, and bring awareness to sexual harassment.
