USA magazine People claims that several sources have told them actresses will make a statement against the culture of sexual misconduct in their industry, which has dominated the news agenda since the revelations against Harvey Weinstein emerged earlier this year.

Following the raised awareness in Hollywood over sexual harassment and gender inequality, industry insiders are now trying to figure out how best to acknowledge the #MeToo movement during awards season in 2018, starting with the Golden Globes.

According to Us Weekly and the Hollywood Reporter, women, including nominees and presenters, are planning to wear the dark shade to the January 7 ceremony.

This has only been reported for the Golden Globes so far, but it won't be surprising if actresses continue the trend throughout awards season, all the way to the Oscars. Since the initial Weinstein story, other top names in the industry including actors Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Spacey, Jeffrey Tambor, and others have come out in a national conversation about sexual harassment and sexism.

"All the stylists who already did fittings are now changing out their clients' original picks for Globes".

It's obviously not the first time fashion has been harnessed to make a statement during the high-profile awards shows.

Many of the Golden Globes female nominees have been extremely vocal about the problematic environment for women within Hollywood, including Jessica Chastain.

The reports come following an announcement that next year's Screen Actor's Guild Awards will feature an all-female presenting panel. Men will still participate in the ceremony, introducing clips for the nominees in the film ensemble category.

The Good Place star Kristen Bell will host the awards show which SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell says will pay tribute to women.
