The Time's Up initiative extends to everyone, not just A-list actresses. 

Eva Longoria and Rosario Dawson will be rocking all black on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday as a sign of solidarity with women fighting sexual harassment in the workplace -- and want their fans to do the same.  Longoria took to Twitter on Saturday to encourage fans to join the movement and post pictures of their all-black ensembles on Sunday, alongside a video message by Dawson, who explained why she and other actresses have chosen to join the movement. 

"Why we wear black? We wear black to symbolize solidarity, that the death knell has struck on the abuse of power, and that it's time to celebrate each other, not just the nominees on our film and television screens, but our story tellers who have bravely come forward and courageously shared their personal stories, which have liberated so many of us. Me too," Dawson said, before thanking people like Rose McGowan, Olivia Munn, Salma Hayek, Terry Crews and more for coming forward with their stories.

"Thank you for courageously telling your stories and signaling this moment. Time's Up," she continued. "Please join us in blacking out Sunday. Post your videos and pictures of yourself in all black, whether you watch or don't watch or go or don't go. Sign our solidarity letter and donate to the fund." 

Longoria, Dawson and more of Hollywood's biggest stars expressed solidarity with their working-class counterparts who have experienced sexual misconduct, with a full-page letter published in The New York Times on New Year's Day. 

"This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment," Longoria, who is expected to walk the Golden Globes red carpet with Reese Witherspoon, told the outlet. "For years, we've sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour."

"This time the industry can't expect us to go up and twirl around," she added. "That's not what this moment is about."
