Alleged Harvey Weinstein rape victim and actress, Rose McGowan made her first public appearance to discuss the disgraced producer at The Women’s Convention in Detroit, Mich., Friday.

McGowan was introduced as the actress “who screamed her Me Too on the internet” in regards to a tweet she posted that claimed Weinstein raped her, reported CBS News.

“I have been silenced for 20 years,” said McGowan Friday. “I have been slut-shamed. I have been harassed. I have been maligned and you know what? I’m just like you. Because what happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society and it cannot stand and it will not stand.”

She urging other women to speak up about experiences with sexism, sexual assault, and harassment.

“It’s time to clean the house,” she said.

The alleged Weinstein victim also created a new hashtag called #RoseArmy. “It’s about the flower, because we have thorns and thorns carry justice,” McGowan said.

McGowan previously disappeared from the public eye by canceling her public appearance at the Tallgrass Film Festival where she was set to receive an award Oct. 19.
