Rather than focusing on Weinstein, who McGowan has insinuated raped her, the actress used the platform to speak out against other sexual abusers.

Representatives for McGowan and Weinstein did not immediately return requests for comment.

The actress best known for her role on the WB Network series Charmed has built a large following online as an outspoken feminist, and gave a speech at the Women's Convention in Detroit on Friday.

According to the Associated Press, the actress said, "The triggering has been insane - the monster's face everywhere, my nightmare". I have been slut shamed, I have been harassed, I have been maligned, and you know what?

Rose McGowan has been one of the fiercest critics not just of Harvey Weinstein for his alleged history of sexual assault, but the entire film industry that enabled him and looked the other way for decades.

"I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three", she told the outlet.

Trump to declare opioids a public health emergency
Chris Christie of New Jersey is expected to release a report on an overall strategy for combating the opioid crisis on November 1. Among its many provisions, Trump's order gives governors more flexibility in how they use federal grants to address the crisis.

The now-disgraced producer, Weinstein has officially apologized for his improper behavior towards those women but denied some allegations including rape. "But I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting", said McGowan, who drained her bank account footing her father's healthcare costs. "I recall clearly what I said next, 'My God, why didn't you say anything? 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".

One day after The Times published the story, McGowan and her lawyer chose to pull out of the agreement.

"When I asked what she meant by that, and how could she possibly be blacklisted, she told me the horrifying story of what Harvey did to her seven years earlier", Rodriguez said in the statement.

Watch out HW, if you come for one of us, you come for all of us. Name it. Shame it. Call it out.

After the incident, McGowan said she went directly to a press event where she fought back tears.

"I want to thank you for being here, for giving me wings during this very hard time, the triggering has been insane, the monster's face everywhere, my nightmare, but I know I'm not alone", she added.
