Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan urges women to fight back

"I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three [million]", the actress said. She received the offer before the first story ran regarding Weinstein's past involving sexual harassment.

McGowan did not refer to Weinstein by name, only once obliquely referencing him as "the monster", and saying the past few weeks have been "triggering" to her thanks to his face being displayed everywhere.

I know you're hurt.I know your rage.I know their lies.I know their hate.I know the truth.I know they lie.

Dozens of women have since made allegations, leading to Weinstein being fired from his studio, The Weinstein Company (TWC), and police launching investigations in London, New York and Los Angeles.

"And then what happened, happened", she said of the alleged sexual assault.

Ms. McGowan who was previously working on a memoir called fearless, and she had in the past about an alleged 1997 hotel room incident with Harvey Weinstein and also hinted at in the public.

Twitter Admits of Overstating Monthly-User Figures For 3 Years
Earlier this month, women boycotted Twitter in support of celebrities like Rose McGowan who were trolled on the platform. Wall Street rejoiced at Twitter's performance-company stock was up almost 15 percent in morning trading.

"What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society and it can not stand and it will not stand..." On her way out, she said, he pointed out the hotel room's bath tub. It's time to clean house!

A representative for Weinstein has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex". Do you think it's really going to stick?' And I do; I do, actually. It is the mirror that you're given to look into.

"For all of us who have been grabbed by the motherf--ing p--", she announced, referencing Donald Trump's infamous Access Hollywood tape, where the reality show host was caught on a hot mic making the same brand of unwanted advances.

"So we are given one view and I know the men that are behind that view and they should not be in your mind and they should not be in mine".

While she described to the Times the encounter that brought on the settlement, she declined to give too many details about what happened, other than to say her former manager, Jill Messick, told her to meet Weinstein at the restaurant in the Stein Eriksen Lodge at the festival for a 10 a.m. appointment. She had previously said that she was a survivor of rape and that her assault was perpetrated by an unnamed, powerful studio boss. It is not the shame of women, she said. "So, it's this vicious circle". "And usually what's at stake is a complete destruction of your character, especially in our business".
