Rose McGowan Spoke Publicly About Sexual Assault Without Saying "Harvey Weinstein" Once

Hear her roarĀ Rose Mc Gowan spoke at the Women's Convention in Detroit on Friday morning, her first public appearance since the Harvey Weinstein story broke

The "Charmed" actress - who has alleged that the 65-year-old producer raped her - says she was offered the hefty amount by someone close to the filmmaker and whilst she initially upped it to $6 million as a counter offer, she chose to retract that offer after all. The actor allegedly had previously signed a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein in 1997 over the incident, but says that she discovered this summer that the agreement did not include a confidentiality clause.

In a statement to Variety, Rodriguez recounted how McGowan told him of her alleged experience with Weinstein and what he tried to do about it.

Rose McGowan claims that producer Harvey Weinstein recently offered her $1million in hush money to keep silent about her sexual assault allegations. Organizers says they're bolstered by the wave of women stepping forward since the New York Times report over three weeks ago.

The director said he met McGowan at an amfAR after party in Cannes in 2005 where he asked her if she has auditioned for Sin City. "But I was like, 'Ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting.'", she said.

I want to thank you for being here, for giving me wings during this very hard time. It's time to be whole. She shared new information about the circumstances surrounding the encounter with Weinstein-though she declined to reveal more about the encounter itself-with the Times, including that it was set up by her then-manager, Jill Messick, of Addis-Wechsler & Associates (now Industry Entertainment). I am just like you. I have been harassed.

It comes after Rose admitted she has found it hard to watch news coverage of the Harvey Weinstein scandal as she finds it very "triggering".

"And then what happened, happened", she said.

I came to be a voice for all of us who've been told we were nothing, for all of us who've been looked down on, for all of us who've been grabbed by the motherf*****g pussy.

McGowan did not say Weinstein's name outright, though she did say that seeing "the monster's face" so much in news reports recently was hard for her.

She wrote:"You know what is truth, Lisa?"

"We are free. We are strong".
