My life, as you will read, has taken me from one cult to another. Brave is the story of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life. I want to help you do the same.-Rose McGowanA revealing memoir and empowering manifesto – A voice for generations.Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood.In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f*ck.Braveis her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto—a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be Brave.

    You are brave. Sexual harassment is about power. It happens at schools, institutions, blue and white collared jobs. We don't want to see it. And when it happens to you, you don't want to believe it. The shame and the lack of compassion is a killer.I'm glad Rose has the strength 💪 to be one of the voices of millions!

    I tried with this book i really did. A friend sent me a PDF file to read because i was interested. the book is so slow moving and Rose McGowan blames everything bad that has happened to her on the world. I can't get behind that kind of thinking and Rose plays the victim way too many times in this book i just can't even!
