Meet the activists who accompanied stars to the Golden Globes

"It's a moment to transform both the written and unwritten rules that devalue the lives and experiences of women".

Meryl Streep's activist date was Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and co-director of Caring Across Generations campaign.

"We believe we are nearing a tipping point in transforming the culture of violence in the countries where we live and work", they wrote. She is also the senior director for Girls For Gender Equity. There is still much work to do, and many hands required to do it. "And we want to fix that and we feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together in a thick black line dividing then from now". "A lot of women say they've been sexually harassed but didn't do anything about it because it was never as bad as when they were young women working in restaurants", she says.
