The actress, director, producer, singer, and activist Rose McGowan delivered the opening remarks at the Opening Day of the Women's Convention in Detroit on Friday where she criticised the portrayal of females during a panel on sexual harassment and industry's treatment.
Giving opening remarks at The Women's Convention in Detroit, she thanked the crowds for giving their support in this "very hard time" where she has had to endure seeing "the monster's face everywhere".
"The triggering has been insane - the monster's face [is] everywhere, my nightmare", she said. "I have been slut-shamed".
And before you go, "What?"-after all, the president has been accused numerous times of sexual harassment and assault-it actually kind of makes sense".
"I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three (million dollars)", she said.

"What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in this society", McGowan said, explaining how her following - which calls itself "RoseArmy" - is not named for her, but the flower, bearing beauty and thorns that inflict justice and effect. "I'm just like you", McGowan, 44, said.
"There are many awesome men in our business, and as soon as all this happened, I received so many emails from first ADs and a sound mixer and Harvey Hanson who created Bones, these men wrote to me and said, 'I can not believe I've been existing this way, and I will never run a set the same way again".
Rodriguez, who dated McGowan from 2006 to 2009, revealed that he knew about the 1997 Sundance Film Festival incident that McGowan made public earlier this month, and that he intentionally cast the actress in a "bad ass" role as a way to spite the media mogul. It is the mirror you are given to look into. I have been harassed.
"We see that there has been many settlement agreements in which women would have been able to file complaints for sexual harassment or talk about it publicly", explained Ariela Gross, professor of law at the university USC in California. "No more. Name it. Shame it. Call it out". "A lot of the interviews that I've given and people I've talked to have said, 'Do you think it's really going to change?"
She said: "Hollywood may seem like it's an isolated thing, but it is not".
