Rose McGowan Calls for Weinstein Co. Board to Resign

Rose McGowan on Sunday night spoke about the entire “bro nature” of Hollywood hours after it was announced Harvey Weinstein had been rightly fired from his own company.  His termination came days after it was reported by the New York Times that the industry mogul had numerous claims of sexual harassment allegations leveled against him by multiple accusers.

In an interview with THR McGowan said the old way Hollywood functioned in regards to the treatment of women is done.

 

“Men in Hollywood need to change ASAP,” McGowan told THR. “Hollywood’s power is dying because society has changed and grown, and yet Hollywood male behavior has not. It is so not a good look. In the way cooler than Hollywood world I live and work in, I am actually embarrassed to be associated with it.”

 

She added, “The men of Hollywood need to know they own no woman. The days of Entourage-like behavior and thinking is as dated as your largely bro nature.”

 

With Weinstein out, McGowan said the next step was crystal clear, in her mind.

 

“I’m calling on the board to resign effective immediately,” she said. “And for other men to stop other men when they are being disgusting.”

 

McGowan, who early Sunday night shared the painting St. Michael Trampling the Dragon by Raphael (St. Michael is the patron saint of the warrior and of chivalry) on Twitter, also told THR that she had a message for females in Hollywood.

 

“And for the women in Hollywood, free your minds,” she said. “There are no ‘rules’ you have to play by. We affect the world’s mind because we are creating and disseminating thought propaganda. There is a great responsibility to be better than you have to be. Stand for women. Stand for truth. Stop hurting us. Rise.”
