This year, the Sunday’s grandiose ceremony of Golden Globe Awards was special as it epitomizes women empowerment.

It is women power that the glitzy extravaganza celebrated in all its hues and shades with talk show celebrity Oprah’s Winfrey’s rousing speech.

Just not that, ‘Time’s Up’ movement emerged as the main theme with a driving campaign to say a big NO to sexual abuse. Hence, the award ceremony projected and celebrated gender equality with a huge emphasis against sexual harassment.

“It’s not a fashion statement. It’s a solidarity statement,” said The Crown actress Claire Foy.
