The letter reads as follows: “In the very near past, we lived in a world where sexual harassment is an uncomfortable joke, a must-see awkward part of being a girl or a woman.

“It was certainly not to be discussed, much less addressed. In 2018, we seem to have woken up in a world ripe for change.

“If we really want to join at this time, a line in the sand will turn to stone.”

The decision to wear black at the Baftas following a demonstration of support in Hollywood for the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year.

Some of the biggest stars will be joined on the red carpet ahead of the Baftas by activists, including Laura Bates, who founded the award-winning everyday Sexism project.
