Rose McGowan skewers Hollywood in powerful speech: 'It's time to clean house'

Rose McGowan to make first public appearance since Weinstein accusations

Fresh off spearheading the accusations against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and calling for accountability for those who have been and remain complicit, actress Rose McGowan delivered an emotional speech at the Women's Convention in Detroit.

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".

McGowan urged others to speak against sexual assault or harassment by using the hashtag #RoseArmy.

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

"I came to be a voice for all of us who've been told we were nothing, for all of us who've been looked down on, for all of us who've been grabbed by the motherf-ing pussy", she said in the rousing speech at the Women's Convention in Detroit.

"For all of us who have been grabbed by the motherf**king pu**y". No more. Name it. Shame it. Call it out.

McGowan was among the actresses cited in the initial New York Times report earlier this month as having settled harassment claims with Weinstein, though she did not comment for the article.

Joe Girardi out after 10 years as New York Yankees manager
During Girardi's 10 years with the team, the Yankees went 910-710, and were the winningest team in baseball. All in all, Girardi drove a revamping Yankees group through the regular reason and playoffs this season.

McGowan did not address these comparisons or criticisms in her Women's Convention speech. "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". And perhaps the biggest takeaway message she had to offer was the following: "It's time to clean house". "I have been slut shamed, I've been harassed, I've been maligned".

Weinstein has previously denied allegations of non-consensual sex. "[Movies are] all told through 96 percent males in the Directors' Guild of America; that statistic has not changed since 1946", she said. We are a planet of women, and you will hear us roar.

McGowan continued, calling Hollywood a "mirror" and a "messaging system for your mind, and denying that it's some sort of "isolated thing". 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 know for me, I went out and actively reached out to men in the business that I know could be allies". And they should not be in your mind, and they should not be in mine.

I want to thank you for being here, for giving me wings during this very hard time. The monster's face everywhere, my nightmare.

There really is no actual difference. The scarlet letter is theirs. "We are strong. We are courageous and we will fight!" "I said, 'Hey, Harvey, this is Rose McGowan".
