Actress who accused Weinstein of rape condemns abusers

Rose McGowan gave a powerful speech Friday at The Women's Convention of Detroit, her first public remarks since accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault (claims Weinstein has denied).

Rose McGowan wants you to know that sexual assault and harassment is not isolated to Hollywood, and it is not something we can ignore any longer.

When she came back to the platform, McGowan dropped a number of bombshell accusations: That she had been raped by the movie producer and that, after she told this to an Amazon Studios executive, he told her that "it hadn't been proven".

Tarantino told the New York Times that while he didn't know the full extent of the allegations of sexual assault against Weinstein, he "knew enough to do more than [he] did".

Police in London, Los Angeles and NY are investigating Weinstein, 65.

On Friday, the founder of #MeToo, Tarana Burke, introduced McGowan who said, "We are all 'Me toos'". "No more. Name it, shame it and call it out".

Join me, join all of us as we amplify each other's voices and we do what is right for us and for our sisters and for this planet, mother Earth.

The tax bill, he said, is "driving the train" and that political reality is that spending cuts will have to wait. He delivered an even blunter message on Tuesday, when he took fresh aim at Sen. "Now we move forward!" Mr.

The New York Times reported that Weinstein paid McGowan a $100,000 (£76,000) settlement in 1997 to "avoid litigation and buy peace" over an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.

McGowan did not address these comparisons or criticisms in her Women's Convention speech. "I wanted her to have a starring role in a big movie to take her OFF the blacklist, and the best part is that we would have Harvey's new Weinstein Company pay for the whole damn thing".

She said at the convention, "Writers in Hollywood use rape as a plot device".

(Weinstein denies any allegation of non-consensual sex.) More than 50 women have now accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct. It's the messaging system for your mind.

But it's all told through 96 per cent males in the Director's Guild of America.

"I know for me, I went out and actively reached out to men in the business that I know could be allies". 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.

I want to thank you for being here, for giving me wings during this very hard time. It's the same situation, and that situation must end because it is not our shame. "We are pure and we are strong and we will fight".
