This year, the Golden Globes 2018 served as a powerful platform to raise voice against sexual harassment and abuse.
Hollywood’s biggest names responded and came forward with their own experiences about being sexually assaulted, harassed, or otherwise mistreated. Their main agenda was to bring awareness to the issue.
All the celebrities wore black dresses for the event in solidarity with the victims and even wore a pin that read ‘Time’s Up’.

Joining their bandwagon, the uber-talented Mehwish Hayat took to social media to bring Pakistan to the infamous #timesup movement.
