Grammys 2018: Why the Stars Are Wearing White Roses

Here's why everyone is wearing a white rose on the red carpet

Lindsay MacDonald

Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Cyndi Lauper and more wore white roses during Sunday night's Grammy Awards red carpet in support of the Time's Up and the #MeToo movement, which looks to end sexual harassment and assault in the workplace among other things. The white rose historically is a symbol of hope, peace, sympathy and resistance.

Time's Up is a legal defense fund which will cover the fees for women who've been sexually harassed or assaulted. Celebrities who have donated or publicly supported the organization include Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Debra Messing, J.J. Abrams, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Meryl Streep.

The #MeToo moment went viral in October 2017 after many took to social media to share their own experiences of sexual harassment or assault in the wake of the New York Times' investigative report on Harvey Weinstein which detailed numerous accusations against the big-name producer.

The showcase of solidarity comes after actresses wore all black to this year's Golden Globe Awards in support of the movement. Many actors also showed their support by wearing a Time's Up pin designed by Arianne Phillips including Globes host Seth Meyers, Jude Law and Hugh Jackman.
