From Instagram to Twitter, these are some of this week’s trending posts to women, from women and about them.

The Women of the Golden Globes

Sunday night brought 20 million viewers’ attention to how Hollywood is dealing with the industry’s sexual assault allegations, and specifically the #MeToo movement. Attendees traded their statement gowns for all-black attire as a way to stand in solidarity with the activists campaigning for gender equality and inclusion. The top three moments of Sunday’s show occurred on the red carpet, in the tail-end of the program and remained trending throughout the week. We’ve recapped these moments below:

As many of the actors brought activists as their dates for the evening, Michelle Williams brought the founder of the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke. Williams gave Burke the spotlight during their red carpet interview and told E! News I am honored beyond measure to be standing next to this woman. I have tears in my eyes and smile on my face.”

During her red carpet interview with Giuliana Rancic, actress Debra Messing used her time to highlight E! News’ gender pay gap when she commented, “I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts as much as their male co-hosts.” Messing was referring to Catt Sadler’s departure last month, after a “massive” pay disparity. Eva Longoria, Laura Dern and Sarah Jessica Parker also used their interviews to call out the network on its treatment of Sadler. Following a speech that ensued a standing ovation, #Oprah2020 is still trending. Newsfeeds filled with various sections of Oprah’s speech as she accepted the Cecil B DeMille Award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” As the powerhouse accepted the honorary award, she used her airtime to spark inspiration in women everywhere–quoting strength, dignity and hope.

Both Goop and Paltrow took to Instagram to break the story before the magazine hit newsstands.

Chrissy Teigen Needs a New Video Game

The model and activist began the week by asking her Twitter followers for advice on video games that wouldn’t inhibit her motion sickness onset by her current pregnancy. What followed was a lengthy chain of recommendations and Teigen comically responding to quite a few before she settled on “Stardew Valley.” Twitter users continued to receive updates on Teigen’s progress in the game until she wrote in a final post ending her Stardew spree, “I can’t go about my dating and crop planting knowing there are weeds by the pond. I just cant. I quit.” Who knew she was such a gamer? Someone help a woman out!

A Royal Has Her First Day of School

This week, the Royal Family shared two photos of Princess Charlotte suited up and ready to start preschool as she posed in a pink-and-red ensemble outside Kensington Palace. The Princess appeared to be all smiles for her first day at Willcocks Nursery School and although she stole the Internet’s hearts, their minds were also captivated by the woman behind the lens, as Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton captured the portraits of her daughter, and was praised for her “good eye.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein Lets The Cat Out of The Bag

While the investigation of President Trump’s prior relations with Russia is ongoing, this week, Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, chose to release a 312-page transcript of a closed-door interview between the Judiciary Committee and Glenn Simpson (founder of Fusion GPS). The transcript address topics from Mr. Trump’s tax history, to Russia’s election-interference, to “alleged” connections with Russian organized crime. While Feinstein was met with opposition by the Republican party, she reinforced her decision with a Tweet saying, “The American people deserve to the opportunity to see the transcript.”

Sarah Silverman Gets Serious

What began as a NSFW tweet to Sarah Silverman ended in the comedian’s support of the user via a GoFundMe page, after a human conversation between the “Twitter troll” and the comedian. Just after Christmas, a one word profanity from @jeremy_jamrozy to Silverman caught her attention–and as she replied with maturity–simultaneously caught the internet’s attention. Silverman responded to the profanity with kindness before she encouraged Jeremy to seek guidance and support for traumatic, past experiences that tarnish his present day outlook on life, which included the support of his GoFundMe page to raise money for doctor’s visits to address his back pain.

Michelle Williams Paid Less than 1% of Mark Wahlburg’s Reshoot Compensation

Michelle Williams remained trending throughout the week after USA Today broke an exclusive that the actress was paid less than $1,000 for the reshoot of All the Money in the World, while her co-star, Mark Wahlberg, was paid $1.5 million. As the allegations against Kevin Spacey heightened and he was pulled from the Ridley Scott thriller, the film proceeded with a nine-day reshoot featuring Christopher Plummer as Spacey’s replacement. While it was originally agreed that the existing actor’s would re-shoot for free, Wahlburg’s earnings were later released, which has now intensified the conversation around equal pay in Hollywood.

Justice for Pakistani Girl Triggers Protests

After the rape and murder of Zainab Ansari, protests erupted in Punjab province, seeking punishment for those responsible for the young girl’s death. The protests inspired a movement across social media as the hashtag #JusticeForZainab caught on and activists began resharing the story, including Malala Yousafazi, with a plea for the government to take action.

Greta Gerwig Addresses Question on Woody Allen

After director Greta Gerwig won the Golden Globe for Best Musical or Comedy for Lady Bird, she was asked how it was working with Woody Allen and if she regretted working with him now that sexual assault allegations surround his name. Coming off a grand win, Gerwig respectfully answered the question to focus on her position as a director and although it’s a topic she’s “thought deeply about,” she says she hasn’t “had an opportunity to, um, have an in-depth discussion where I come down on one side or another.” This week, her response has been flagged as an aversion to the original question, with media criticizing her reaction to the sensitive topic.
