Hollywood, Bollywood are propaganda machines: Rose McGowan
The actor says that both industries try to tell how a man or woman should function
Actor Rose McGowan called Hollywood and Bollywood propaganda machines, saying that they try to tell how a man or a woman should function.
"I started acting in Hollywood around 20 years ago accidentally, and through the times I have realised that it is not different from any other industry. The veil of secrecy is so intense...Hollywood and Bollywood are propaganda machines. It is set up by men in power," she says.
McGowan had accused Hollywood producer Harry Weinstein of sexual assault, and started the #MeToo hash tag to raise awareness about sexual harassment. It soon became a movement with people from all quarters coming forward to share their experience of sexual assault.
McGowan feels "for every #MeToo hashtag, there's a #Ididit too." She says Hollywood is "just a microcosm of the problems across the world. What's happening now with women coming forward scares men, and it's okay to be uncomfortable."
The Charmed actress is dedicated to change things for good. "We need to get back to humanity. That's the only way to address the issue. I know we can change things," she adds.
