Rose McGowan finds Harvey Weinstein coverage tough

Speaking at the Women's Convention in Detroit on Friday (10.27.17), she said: "I have been silenced for 20 years". The event is an offshoot of the Women's March protests that swept the nation in January. I have been slut shamed, I have been harassed, I have been maligned, and you know what, I'm just like you. I am just like you.

The actress delivered the opening remarks earlier in the daytime at the convention, It was her first public speech since she revealed that Weinstein raped her.

Dozens of women have come forward over the past two weeks to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment and, in some cases, sexual assault.

Weinstein, for his part, has categorically denied claims of rape.

A social media campaign has also been trending around the world with women sharing their experiences of sexual harassment.

"For all of us who have been grabbed by the motherf**king pu**y. 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 us who have been looked down on. "For all of us who have been grabbed by the motherf***ing p***y". "Hollywood may seem like it's an isolated thing, but it is not", she explained.

"It's not", she said. It's the messaging system for your mind. It is the mirror that you're given to look into.

"We have been waiting a very long time for this to happen but we don't need to wait anymore because we got this, we got this I know it". "It's time to clean house", she said at the end of her speech, before raising her fist in the air.

The Hollywood Reporter said McGowan confirmed she was referring to Weinstein. 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.

She's said she is no different than any other rape victim.

"The scarlet letter is theirs, it is not ours" McGowan said. "We are pure and we are strong and we will fight".

Later, McGowan appeared on a panel with fellow actress and friend Amber Tamblyn.

Rose McGowan called for change in a passionate speech at the Women's Convention Friday. "Because they are also a product of culture, but they are regurgitating culture and making culture".

Early this month, McGowan tweeted out that she had been raped by a man with the initials "HW". "And you know what?"
