This year, cosmetic company L'Oreal Paris USA, sought to change the red carpet conversation for women by starting the hashtag campaign #WorthSaying.

Golden Globes kicked off the awards season this weekend and like last year, a lot of controversy is swirling around what women should be asked on the red carpet. Many actresses rallied together against the "Who are you wearing" question and stunts like the manicam.

L'Oreal Paris USA launched a campaign this year to continue the movement of asking women meaningful questions on the red carpet.

Many red carpet campaigns similar to L'Oreal's launched last year including #AskHerMore, #SmartGirlsAsk and #FlipTheScript.

Founder and CEO of "The Representation Project" Jennifer Siebel Newsom joined to the show to discuss the effectiveness of these campaigns.
