Rose McGowan has become a central protagonist in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal and #MeToo social media movement highlighting the prevalence of unwanted sexual advances towards women-yet until today, she had not spoken in public about either. We had a dinner and I said, "You need to go speak to Jodi Kantor from the New York Times and you need to tell her what you told me". I've been maligned. And you know what?

McGowan will be the opening speaker at the Women's Convention, an event full of workshops, strategy sessions and forums being held this weekend in Detroit. "We must ensure that justice is served and demand cultural change in our country so that this never happens again". And our thorns carry outcome.

"It would have been much easier on both of us if we could have just revealed why we were doing it", Rodriguez said, though neither did due to the NDA.

McGowan brought attention to the fact that the Directors' Guild of America is 96% male, and has been since 1946. "We are given one view".

"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".

Director Robert Rodriguez has said that he knew of Rose McGowan's rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein when he cast her in Grindhouse and that he made the decision to "literally make him pay". She then proudly raised her fist in the air.

One of the key figures in the October 5 New York Times exposé on decades of sexual harassment claims against movie producer Harvey Weinstein told an audience in Detroit on Friday that her silence is over.

The Times also reported that Weinstein paid a financial settlement of $100,000 to McGowan in 1997 over an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

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

"No more will we be shunted to the side", she said. It's the messaging system for your mind. It is the mirror you are given to look into. We are a planet of women, and you will hear us roar. And just because you are complicit in something like this does not make you a bad person, and the ownership of it for men is the beginning of all real reception. This is what you are as a boy.

"I came to be a voice for all of us who have been told that we are nothing". "For all of us who have been looked down on".

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". "No more. Name it, shame it and call it out".
