Summary In Hollywood McGowan was continually on display, and stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. She escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. She was supposed to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. This is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto: an exposé about an entertainment industry built on systemic misogyny.-- Adapted from book jacket.
The "Charmed" star and award-winning director traces her childhood escape from an Italian cult and her rise in Hollywood, describing how she endured nightmarish exposure and sexualization before committing herself to feminist causes.
"The surprising and captivating memoir and radical manifesto of one of the most controversial women in Hollywood--actress, activist, musician, director, and all-around feminist badass Rose McGowan"-- Provided by publisher.
