Rose McGowan Vows to Keep Fighting Sexual Misconduct in Hollywood

McGowan will be one of many awesome women who will be attending the convention (full list of speakers here) and I for one am glad that she is using her celebrity status to promote something important.

McGowan is slated to deliver the opening remarks at The Women's Convention in Detroit on Friday, and will participate in another panel on sexual abuse in schools. "And that can not stand, and it will not stand".

Since that time, McGowan has used Twitter to publicly accuse Weinstein of raping her.

"I feel very special", Ashley said in regards to being honored at the event (via E!).

A Weinstein representative has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.

On Friday, McGowan said because Hollywood is male-dominated, "we are given one view".

"I came to be a voice for all of us who've been told we are nothing", McGowan said. She said the entertainment industry isn't isolated; instead, "it is the mirror you are given to look into".

Weinstein reached a $100,000 settlement with McGowan in 1997 following an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival when she was 23, the Times reported.

"So we are given one view and I know the men that are behind that view and they should not be in your mind and they should not be in mine. It's time to clean house". The head monster of all right now", she said, "and they are the same and they must die.

McGowan was among the actresses cited in the initial New York Times report earlier this month as having settled harassment claims with Weinstein, though she did not comment for the article.

According to its site, the Women's Convention will bring together all genders "for a weekend of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums and intersectional movement building to continue the preparation going into the 2018 midterm elections".
