Rose McGowan to make first public appearance since Weinstein accusations

Dissension Do not target all men

At the inaugural Women's Convention in Detroit, Michigan on Friday, actress and high profile anti-sexual assault advocate Rose McGowan gave a powerful speech, telling the assembled crowd "I'm just like you", and continuing her recent high-profile advocacy for survivors of sexual assault and harassment.

As Mika Brzezinski put it earlier on Friday morning, "We are at a pivotal moment in history where unacceptable harassing behavior towards women will no longer be swept under the rug", and McGowan's speech certainly reflected that sentiment. When the actress made mention that she was a fan of film noir, Rodriguez commented that she should have auditioned, to which she replied that she had been blacklisted from working on Weinstein movies.

When McGowan was struggling after the gruesome incident with her and the Weinstein effect that caused her (losing) many movies, Rodriguez (who met her in 2005 at the Cannes Film Festival and was also her boyfriend from 2006 to 2009), came upto her.

"Join me as we amplify our voices.it's time to clean house".

The Oscar-winning producer apologized without addressing any specific conduct, but has denied later allegations by several women that he raped them.

McGowan also emphasized that sexual harassment is not isolated to Hollywood, but its male-oriented messaging contributes to a culture of ignoring women and their stories, noting that the Director's Guild of America is 96 percent male. A final determination in that case will be made next month.

She said: "I have been silenced for 20 years". I have been slut-shamed.

Rose McGowan is standing strong in her first public appearance since accusing Harvey Weinstein of raping her.

"Until now I've not been able to say anything about it out of respect for the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) Rose had signed under extreme pressure from Harvey", he continues. "I'm just like you".

In her speech at the Women's Convention, McGowan turned her attention outward, saying, "what happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in this society and that can not stand and it will not stand".

Speaking at The Women's Convention in Detroit, she thanked the crowd for their support in a "very hard time", saying she has had to endure seeing "the monster's face everywhere".

"For all of us who have been grabbed by the motherf--ing p--y, no more", McGowan said.

"The scarlet letter is theirs, it is not ours" McGowan said.
