For those excited to see if numerous A-list stars are bringing their significant others or family members as their dates to the Golden Globes, you will have to wait for a different award show.

The actress, who will be presenting at the event tonight, walked the annual event with Marai, the leader of Imkaan, a United Kingdom -based women's organization that is aimed at responding to and preventing violence against black minoritized women and girls.

With the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement in full effect on the red carpet, several of Hollywood's most powerful women showed up to the 75th Golden Globes with important activists by their side.

Stone's decision to bring King isn't a wholly unprecedented move; in 2015, the year Reese Witherspoon played Cheryl Strayed in Wild, the film based on Strayed's book, she took the author as her date. She cofounded ROC in New York City after 9/11, together with displaced World Trade Center workers, which has organized those who work in restaurants to win workplace justice campaigns, conduct research and policy work, partner with responsible restaurants, and launch cooperatively owned restaurants.


Michelle Williams brought Tarana Burke, the founder of #metoo. Stone is nominated for best actress on Sunday night for her portrayal of King in the movie Battle of the Sexes. "Every generation has to fight for equality and freedom forever".

Janney added, "I'm wearing black to stand with every man and women out here in Hollywood to stand-up for people, mostly women, who have been sexually abused, assaulted or harassed and made them feel unsafe at workplace and who have been held back due to their sex. It's got to stop right now".

Poehler's guest was Saru Jayaraman, president of Restaurant Opportunities Centers, Shailene Woodley was being accompanied by Suquamish Tribe member Calina Lawrence, and Laura Dern walked alongside Monica Ramirez, a supporter of worker-led movements. The organization was formed in 2011 and its objective is to "unify the struggle to promote farm worker women's leadership in a national movement to create a broader visibility and advocate for changes that ensure their human rights", according to the group's website.
