Today, Time’s Up asked women to wear black in support of sexual survivors. In addition to asking women to wear black, the organization made up of volunteers, celebrities, and advocates, released a statement saying, “If confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh would have tremendous influence over the lives of working women for generations to come. A lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land should not be rushed through without thorough vetting of all critical issues.”
California’s Senator Kamala Harris, one of the most vocal Senators against Kavanaugh and rumored to soon be a presidential nominee, wore black to the Capitol, supporting the #MeToo movement. She shared her picture on #Instagram and #Twitter.
Harris also tweeted in support of an investigation into the sexual abuse claims on September 23rd.
The color black remains an important color in the fashion and political industry. It can signify class, power, and indulgence.
While some see wearing a certain color as a small gesture, it is always refreshing to see an elected official, celebrity, or influencer use their platform to support a cause - through fashion.
