Rose McGowan At Women’s Conference Publicly Speaking For First Time Since Weinstein Allegations

DETROIT (WWJ) – The woman at the epicenter of the Harvey Weinstein scandal will appear in Detroit Friday.

Actress Rose McGowan is scheduled to give opening remarks at the Women’s Convention at Cobo Center in Detroit, a weekend long event filled with workshops, forums and strategy sessions.

She was one of the first to claim the disgraced Hollywood producer had raped her.

The case became more troubled yesterday when a reporter said that Weinstein’s attorney had offered him a dossier on McGowan’s sexual exploits.

McGowan will take part in a discussion with sexual assault survivors on Friday afternoon titled “Fighting for Survivors of Sexual Assault in the Age of Betsy DeVos.”

Weinstein has been fired from his own company — later issuing a resignation. He’s also been dropped from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Producers Guild of American since dozens of women have come forward to accused him of everything from sexual harassment to rape.

Weinstein, through his attorney, has denied all allegations.

The Women’s Conference at Cobo Hall in Detroit: Oct. 27-29, 2017. See the complete schedule of sessions here.
