It also matters to the audience at home. Seeing artists protesting and addressing issues of sexual misconduct and inequality is inspiring. Protests, like the all-black dress code at the Golden Globes
, invigorated many home viewers as well as raising their consciousness. A study by MTV found that of young viewers, aged 18-25, 87% of them think talking about #MeToo experiences is a good thing and 45% feel they would have to avoid watching a TV show or movie starring someone accused of sexual assault. And a survey by The Tylt revealed
that 66% of millennials think celebrities should be political at awards shows. It seems that the younger end of the audience wants to know who is part of the resistance and trying to bring equality to the world of entertainment. Sexual abuse is an issue so many women of all ages face themselves. They want to see their heroes fighting it, on their behalf.
