This Is What Time's Up Supporters Will Be Wearing To The Golden Globes

This week marks one year since the Time's Up movement was formed to stand up against widespread sexual harassment in Hollywood.

The organisation was created in the wake of numerous revelations of abuse and misconduct in the entertainment industry -- and has since grown to demand "safe, fair and dignified work" for women in all workplaces.

At last year's sombre Golden Globes award ceremony, attendees wore black gowns, and suits -- and men attached Time's Up pins to their lapels.

"I think it's a coming out," actress Viola Davis commented at last year's event. "You know, it's all of these women just embracing their authentic voices and standing in solidarity with each other," she said of wearing black on the red carpet.

This year, colour is expected to return the Globes -- but there will still be a strong visual reminder of the movement.

Guests at this year's film and TV awards ceremony will don black and white ribbons and bands, created by Hollywood costume designer Arianne Phillips, AAP reports.

Phillipps created last year's Time's Up pins at the request of Reese Witherspoon, one of the most prominent leaders of the movement.

"We wanted to stand up and do something for all people to say time's up on discrimination, harassment and abuse in the work place," Witherspoon said last year.

This year, the black-and-white ribbons worn on the red carpet will symbolise the tying together of supporters to create "safe, fair, and dignified workplaces for women of all kinds", AAP reports.

They'll also represent the group's TIMESUPx2 campaign that's aiming to double the number of women in leadership, and "across other spaces where women are underrepresented".

The Time's Up group is also continuing to raise cash for their Legal Defence fund, which has helped connect 3,400 men and women to legal resources in the last 12 months.

The 76th Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 7th at noon AEDT.
