She was dressed in a regal puffed-sleeve red dress — but it was Colman’s eye-catching accessory that had eagle-eyed fans talking.
What at first glance appeared to be a large button on the 45-year-old actress’s clutch was actually a ring with a special message.
Reading "Equal representation for actresses, 50:50," the ring highlights ERA 50:50, a British organization that promotes equal gender balance on screen and stage.
Both Emma Watson and Claire Foy wore buttons to the 2018 Golden Globes at the height of the #MeToo movement. This year, Colman continues the tradition of supporting the organization by bringing awareness to the cause on the red carpet.
Available in both Colman’s ring format and the buttons worn by Watson and Foy, supporters can donate to ERA 50:50 by purchasing the statement-making accessories through their website.
Retailing for £3.50 and £2.00 (approx. $6 and $3.40) respectively, all funds go towards campaign activity in the U.K., and are used for activities directly related to bringing 50:50 representation on stage and on screen in the U.K.
