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

Since the expose from the Times, a subsequent story from The New Yorker and countless other allegations from women who claim to have encountered Weinstein over the years, McGowan has been using her massive following on Twitter and support from fellow celebrities to be one of the more outspoken voices for change in Hollywood.

Shortly before the rash of allegations against Weinstein came out, he offered McGowan $1 million to keep quiet about her own story.

The "Charmed" star - says she was offered the hefty amount by someone close to the filmmaker and whilst she initially upped it to $6 million as a counter offer, she chose to retract that offer after all.

"Ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting."

She then said she went back and asked for $6m (£4.5m) but later told her lawyer to pull the offer.

Thankfully, as Anthony mentioned in his post , everyone is OK, and the team has safely arrived in Chicago . The players were on a chartered Boeing 757-200 that was being operated by Delta at the time.

In response to the lengthy accusations made against Weinstein, a spokesperson for the movie mogul previously said, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

Rose McGowan gives opening remarks to the audience at the Women's Convention in Detroit on October 27. McGowan stated: "I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art".

McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein 20 years ago but says that she learned over the summer that that previous settlement "had never included a confidentiality clause". McGowan, on the other hand, has publicly accused the producer of raping her, and spoke out at the convention Friday in her first public appearance since the scandal exploded into the national consciousness.

I know you're hurt.I know your rage.I know their lies.I know their hate.I know the truth.I know they lie. I have been slut-shamed. "We are fearless, and we will fight", said McGowan, who raised her left fist defiantly as the crowd at the Women's Convention in Detroit stood and cheered in support. I have been harassed. What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in this society. "I'm just like you", McGowan, 44, said. The monster's face has been everywhere, my nightmare ...

"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. Name it. Shame it. Call it out. It is the mirror that you're given to look into.
