After a series of Instagram posts supporting the Time’s Up movement, feminist icon and Beauty and the Beast actress Emma Watson arrived on the Golden Globes 2018 red carpet in black, of course.

The 27-year-old rocked her dark brown strands and newly cropped bangs, which she debuted on Instagram last week.

The actress pulled her hair into a low updo for the event – but it wasn’t her hair or even her plunging satin gown that got us talking.

The Harry Potter alumni brought a special guest with her to the ceremony – Marai Larasi, the executive director of Imkaan, a women’s organisation based in the UK. Here are all the ways sexual harassment and inequality were called out at last night’s Golden Globes, from the dress code to speeches.

‘When Michelle Williams spearheaded the idea of actresses bringing activists on the red carpet, my first thought was it would be so great to do it with Marai,’ Watson told E!‘s Ryan Seacrest.

As for Time’s Up’s focus on women in Hollywood, Larasi explained that it’s simply an accessible platform to spread their message. ‘We’re saying women in Hollywood have an opportunity to amplify the issues and shine a light,’ she said.

We salute you, Marai and Emma.
