Guests at the Bafta Film Awards showed their support for the Time’s Up and Me Too campaigns by wearing black and sending messages from the stage.
Virtually all the stars at the London ceremony were in black and some were accompanied by rights campaigners.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a dark green dress with a black ribbon belt.
“The Royal Family very rarely get involved in political messaging, so perhaps it’s not such a surprise that she didn’t join in with the rest of the women and wear black tonight.” – Bethan Holt
But the vast majority of other attendees did wear black as well as Time’s Up badges – all in reference to a push for greater respect and equality since the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.
We wear black to say #TIMESUP on workplace harassment, abuse and inequality. We wear black to stand in solidarity with women of all industries, from the #BAFTAS & beyond, the message remains the same: we stand for safety and equity in the workplace #TIMESUP #WHYWEWEARBLACK pic.twitter.com/tFVAVfJQ3s
