A-list actresses bring activists to Golden Globes red carpet

Meryl Streep and Ai-jen Poo walk the red carpet.

In a joint statement, the eight activists said they hoped that by attending the Golden Globes, they would redirect attention from abusers to survivors and lasting solutions. King said it was "one of the highlights" of her life to attend on such an important night.

Dern said she had reached out to Ramirez "to say that she stood with all the 700,000 women farm workers in solidarity for the women in our industry who were fearless enough to speak out about sexual harassment and assault".

Nominee Emma Stone took tennis champ and advocate Billie Jean King, whom the actress portrayed in the film "Battle of the Sexes".
