Since it first became known that Golden Globes attendees planned to wear black on the red carpet to show solidarity for the victims of sexual assault and gender inequality worldwide, there has been an overwhelming response of support for the movement.
If the historic red carpet blackout left you wondering what it was all about, a few actresses and industry insiders took to Twitter to explain their personal motivations behind supporting the powerful style statement. Here's what they had to say.

I am wearing black today because balance and inclusion and diversity is not some kind of allowance to be made to accommodate people. No, sir. It is a correction of an error. It is a righting of a wrong. And it is going to be done. Now. #TimesUp pic.twitter.com/nVkhWubEwq

Because the numbers don't lie.
Because tomorrow is too far.
Because your fight is my fight.
Because enough is enough.
Because it's time.
That's why. #WhyWeWearBlack #TimesUp #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/VseCNXLUIe
