Actress Rose McGowan says her silence over on sexual assault

Rose McGowan's Women's Convention Speech Goes Off On Hollywood & Demands

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".

Rose McGowan told The New York Times in an interview on Saturday that she was offered $1 million in hush money if she signed a nondisclosure agreement that would have prevented her from speaking out against disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

McGowan had previously reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after a hotel room incident in 1997 during the Sundance Film Festival. It's time to clean house! "I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting", she said.

The original expose story, published on 5 October, was followed by multiple allegations from dozens of women accusing the Hollywood producer of sexual harassment and assault.

"What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in this society", McGowan said, explaining how her following - which calls itself "RoseArmy" - is not named for her, but the flower, bearing beauty and thorns that inflict justice and outcome. Rodriguez said he then came up with a plan - to cast McGowan in an upcoming project he was working on with Quentin Tarantino for Dimension (a division of the Weinstein Company, under Bob Weinstein), which turned out to be Grindhouse.

Giving opening remarks at The Women's Convention in Detroit, she thanked the crowds for giving their support in this "very hard time" where she has had to endure seeing "the monster's face everywhere". At a panel for Women in Film at the Women's Convention in Detroit, Tamblyn spoke about the importance of holding men accountable for their actions, and of the power of male allies in any industry. I have been slut shamed, I have been harassed, I have been maligned, and you know what? "Because what happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society, and it can not stand and it will not stand". (McGowan alleged in a series of tweets earlier this month that Weinstein raped her).

In the wake of the shocking revelations about Harvey Weinstein and his abuse of power against women who worked with him over the years, one more outspoken voice against him has been actress Rose McGowan. I am just like you.

McGowan also called out Hollywood, the "mirror you're given to look into", for overwhelmingly employing men as directors.
