There may have been a little less black on the red carpet at the Critics' Choice Awards than the Golden Globes, but the message about equality for women and putting an end to sexual harassment in the workplace remained loud and clear.
On Thursday the stars were out, as the 23rd annual Critics Choice awards kicked off in Santa Monica.
And, while it wasn't code black on the red carpet this time, in the name of equality for women and an end to sexual harassment in the workplace, the conversation stayed the same.

Gal Gadot won the second annual #SeeHer award at the show and delivered a powerful acceptance speech. "My promise and commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced and we will continue to band together to make strides, uniting for equality," Gadot said.
Kumail Nanjiani also used his win for the film Big Sick to highlight the issue:
"We're very happy that our movie's coming out in a year when Hollywood's having a lot of difficult conversations with itself and we're amplifying voices that have been silenced for too long. And I think, as men, we've been talking for centuries. It's time for us to shut up, listen and amplify. Thank you."
