- Tarana Burke, senior director of the nonprofit Girls for Gender Equity and founder of the #MeToo movement, will attend with Ms. Williams, a nominee for her performance in "All the Money in the World". News' Ryan Seacrest, Meryl Streep said that the power of the #MeToo movement is that "people have become aware now of how power imbalance leads to abuse in our own industry" as well as among women in other industries, including working-class women employed as domestic workers.

"For me, it's about unity".

The actresses will shun partners and loved ones as their red carpet guests, instead choosing instead to invite activists and inspirational women to bring further impact to the #whywewearblack and fight for racial and gender equality. "We don't what to create hierarchies where we are saying women of Hollywood are more important than anyone else but women in Hollywood have a chance to amplify the issues and shine a light on them".

Meryl Streep's activist date was Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and co-director of Caring Across Generations campaign.
