We’ve given Rose McGowan a hard time here for her political opinions, but it’s important that we also give her credit where it’s due. McGowan has been arguably the loudest celebrity voice condemning Hollywood’s tolerance for sexual misconduct and rape.

More from Vanity Fair:

In 2016, Rose McGowan made waves when she alleged that a studio head had raped her. Using the hashtag #WhyWomenDontReport, she said she never reported the alleged crime because she was told that she could never win such a case: “A (female) criminal attorney said because I’d done a sex scene in a film I would never win against the studio head,” she wrote. McGowan added that her ex-partner sold the film she was working on to her alleged rapist’s company, and that the man’s behavior was “an open secret in Hollywood/Media.”

“They shamed me while adulating my rapist,” she wrote.

Since the Times revelation, McGowan has not mentioned Weinstein by name—but she has alluded to the news on Twitter.

Though McGowan might never formally name Weinstein for a variety of reasons—including her alleged settlement, which may have come coupled with an N.D.A.—her tweets have made it clear that she has a personal connection to the Weinstein allegations. Perhaps now that they’re out in the open, the actress will speak openly about them as well.

It’s been a few days since that piece was written, and it looks like McGowan is more boldly condemning Weinstein — and everyone she says has enabled his sick lecherousness over the years. Over the weekend, McGowan let loose:



Today, she’s still on a tear — and she’s taking no prisoners.

Here’s what she’s referring to:


If they’ve got consciences, not good, we imagine.
