Rose McGowan and the Monkeybone Podcast
Despite the controversy surrounding McGowan’s book and film, The Brave Truth, her message is one of bravery and resilience. In her book, McGowan lashes out at Oprah Winfrey, whom she says has never responded to her insults.
Oprah Winfrey hasn’t responded to McGowan’s insults
Earlier this year, American actor and comedian Rose McGowan took a jab at Oprah Winfrey with a tweet claiming the Queen of Talk is a fake. She also penned a lengthy list of accusations against the media mogul. During the #MeToo movement, McGowan was one of the first women to allege sexual misconduct by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
She also took a stab at Oprah for faking an all-encompassing support for the women’s movement. McGowan tweeted a picture of Winfrey kissing convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein. She has been accused of sexual assault by more than 20 women. The Twitter user has over 10 thousand followers and has garnered over 2.5 thousand retweets.
On February 26, 2020, a jury found Weinstein guilty of two felonies, including rape in the third degree. He is also facing several other charges. He will begin a 23-year prison sentence in 2020.
Aside from her alleged relationship with Weinstein, McGowan also dragged Winfrey’s name into a number of conversations about the media mogul’s legacy.
McGowan’s book is furious and profane
Those who have read McGowan’s memoir, Brave, are likely to know she has a long history of sexual abuse. She claims to have been raped at age 15. She was also a member of the Me Too movement and claims to have been the first to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. She also describes being abandoned by her parents at age 15 and escaping an abusive relationship.
In Brave, McGowan details innumerable acts of degradation and abuse. She explains how she used photography as a way to escape. She also describes how Hollywood’s beauty culture was a huge problem for her.
Eventually, she cut ties with the industry. She says she began writing her memoir about her abuse months before Weinstein’s reckoning. She agreed to a nondisclosure agreement so she would not be able to speak about it publicly.
McGowan’s new book is a lot less rosy than the one she released a few months ago. She claims there is no glamour in her story and that her memoir is filled with wild details.
McGowan’s message is one of bravery and resilience
Activist Rose McGowan has been a voice for women’s rights in the #MeToo movement. She is a social activist, director and musician. She also acts as an Executive Producer on E!’s new documentary series CITIZEN ROSE. The first episode will air on January 30, and four more will follow in the spring.
McGowan’s new book, Brave, is her battle cry against a culture that shames and objects women. The book details the harrowing life she’s lived.
McGowan was born into a cult called The Children of God. When she was in her teen years, McGowan’s mother left her with her pathological liar. She moved to Los Angeles. Her father also moved away, taking his second wife and their children with him.
When McGowan was 13, she was committed to a drug rehabilitation facility. She was also assaulted by her boyfriend William. He choked and dragged her by her collar, leaving her with two toenails missing. When she refused to say she’d taken God into her heart, members of the cult beat her.
