Stone's decision to bring King isn't a wholly unprecedented move; in 2015, the year Reese Witherspoon played Cheryl Strayed in Wild, the film based on Strayed's book, she took the author as her date.

Additionally, both actors and actresses will wear specially-made "Times's Up" lapel pins in an effort to raise awareness of the newly-created Time's Up initiative, which seeks to provide legal funds and representation to women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted in the workplace.

"We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work. We are participants in this entertainment industry, and we have something to say".

Susan Sarandon tweeted that she was honored to attend the awards show with Rosa Clemente, a Puerto Rican activist and journalist who "has come to remind us that PR is still in crisis".

Laura Dern's date was Monica Ramirez, co-founder of Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, "who wrote the handsome letter of solidarity in Time magazine", said Dern of how she connected with Ramirez, representing female farmworkers.

It's for this reason that Streep chose to walk the red carpet this year with Ai-jen Poo, who is the Executive Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance. Poehler is with Sary Jayaraman, who advocates for restaurant workers; Dern is taking Mónica Ramírez, a Latina empowerment activism who focuses on sexual violence against farmworkers.

Woodley is set to bring Calina Lawrence, a Suquamish Tribe member and activist for Native American treaty and water rights. Motorcycle officers cruised down the red carpet. "So it's now Emma's turn to do that".

It's an nearly certainty that all of these women will be wearing black, an initiative organised by the Time's Up campaign to stand in solidarity with those who experience sexual harassment, assault or abuse across all industries.
