Activists join actresses on the Golden Globes red carpet

She's ace! Emma Stone brings Billie Jean King to Golden Globes after nomination for playing tennis icon

While award show red carpets used to be filled with answers to the question, "Who are you wearing?" this year, actresses largely used their time at the microphone to advance their causes. Burke founded the Me Too movement in 2006 to raise awareness about the pervasiveness of sexual abuse and assault in society, which the recent hashtag #MeToo amplified.

So, in honor of female empowerment, we created a list of iconic actresses who've won in the past.

Streep, who is nominated this year for Best Actress - Drama for "The Post", will bring Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

Many wore black on the red carpet to stand in solidarity with the wave of women and men who spoke up about being sexually harassed in Hollywood.

The special plus-ones afforded the women an opportunity to keep questions on the carpet about issues.

Amazon's Alexa may eventually serve up ads
Manufacturing partners that have signed on to the program include GE Appliances , Kenmore , LG, Samsung, and Whirlpool . You might, for example, tell Alexa to set the microwave for 3 minutes or ask Alexa to preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

- 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". "We all deserve workplaces where we're safe and our work is valued and we can live and work with dignity - that's the future", Poo said.

Woodley's date is Suquamish Tribe member Calina Lawrence, who advocates for Native American treaty and water rights.

Meanwhile, Sarandon will bring activist and political commentator Rosa Clemente, Stone will be accompanied by former tennis pro and Women's Sport Foundation founder Billie Jean King, and Dern's plus-one will reportedly be immigration activist and Alianza Nacional de Campesinas co-founder Mónica Ramirez.

Amy Poehler will bring Saru Jayaraman, the president of the Restaurant Opportunities Centres United and ROC Action, which fights to improve wages and working conditions for restaurant industry workers.
