DETROIT—In her first official appearance since publicly accusing disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of raping her, actress and activist Rose McGowan, speaking on a panel at the opening day of the Women’s Convention here, called on others in the industry to speak out against sexual violence.
“People who have a platform have an obligation, otherwise get the f**k off,” she said to rousing applause at a packed session called “Fighting for survivors of sexual assault in the age of Betsy DeVos.” McGowan was joined by survivors of sexual assault and representatives of groups advocating for victim support.
“I’ve had monsters in my life try to eradicate me from the planet, but I will not go,” said McGowan, the star of films including Jawbreaker, Scream, and Planet Terror, as well as the early 2000s television series Charmed.
Other speakers throughout the convention will range from U.S. senators to grassroots activists including Tarana Burke, who created the “Me Too” movement more than a decade ago. The event, which runs through Sunday, is expected to draw roughly 4,000 attendees, organizers said.
Weinstein, an Oscar-winning producer, was fired from The Weinstein Company on Oct. 8 following a report in The New York Times detailing allegations of sexual harassment and assault against him. He has apologized without specificity, but subsequently rejected accusations of rape by several women.
