The red carpet of the 75th Golden Globe Awards Sunday night was a sea of black gowns and tuxedos (and, in Alison Brie's case, fabulous pants), as actors followed through on a pledge to wear the color to protest sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood.

"We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work", they wrote.

King, who founded the Women's Tennis Association, has been an advocate for equal pay for women and gender equality since the early 1970s.

Clemente is a community organizer, political commentator and 2008 vice presidential candidate for the Green Party ticket.
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.
