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

In a statement issued to Variety, Rodriguez writes: "As one of the first victims to come forward with stories of sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein, Rose McGowan is a very courageous woman who I applaud for speaking out about Weinstein's repulsive behavior".

Though McGowan reached a settlement with Weinstein for $US100,000 in 1997, she realised over that the contract had not included a confidentiality clause.

The actor says that she initially responded to Weinstein's offer with her own counter-offer of $6m, partly as a way of raising money towards paying for her career as a multimedia artist and partly as a means of torturing the producer.

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

"I want to thank you for being here for giving me wings during this very hard time".

The now-disgraced producer, Weinstein has officially apologized for his improper behavior towards those women but denied some allegations including rape.

"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.

One such woman, actress Rose McGowan, who has been a driving force on Twitter against Weinstein, delivered the opening remarks Friday at this weekend's Women's Convention in Detroit.

"I have been silenced for 20 years", McGowan said.

Now actress Amber Tamblyn, who has been a vocal advocate against sexism and sexual assault in Hollywood, said that she personally told Tarantino to come forward with what he knew. "I have been slut-shamed".

McGowan spoke of issues in their industry that continue to permeate including "when writers in Hollywood use rape as a plot device because they can't imagine that women can't get strong otherwise". I have been harassed. "I recall clearly what I said next, 'My God, why didn't you say anything?"

"What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society and it can not stand and it will not stand..."

"No more. Name it, shame it, call it out".

On October 12, a week after the New York Times first reported allegations against Weinstein, McGowan tweeted that she was raped by "HW", and confirmed that the initials signified Harvey Weinstein.
