Standing beside tennis legend and longtime advocate for gender equality and LGBT rights, Billie-Jean King, on the red carpet, actress Emma Stone looked resplendent in her lace, one-shouldered dress.
The gown was, of course, black – because, like almost every other actor, actress and activist to attend the Golden Globes this year, Stone was taking part in the Time’s Up initiative launched by Hollywood women to advocate better for the end of sexual harassment.
They’d agreed to all wear black in solidarity in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal.
Stone was also one of eight actresses who brought racial and gender justice activists along to the ceremony as their guests.
So far, so empowering.
Emma Stone stands with the victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Only, does she really?
Stone has twice worked with renowned director Woody Allen, who has had allegations of sexual assault levelled against him.

Dylan Farrow, Allen’s adopted daughter with actress Mia Farrow, in 1992 said her father was sexually assaulting her. She was seven at the time, but these are allegations that she has long maintained.
Stone isn’t the only actress associated with the Time’s Up movement who seems happy to brush the allegations made against Allen under the carpet.
Last week, actress Blake Lively, who starred in Allen’s 2016 film, Cafe Society, pledged her support for the campaign on Twitter, saying: “I’m honored to be a part of this movement. The time is NOW!”
Almost immediately she was pulled up on her hypocrisy by none other than Allen’s accuser.
