. In 2017, Rose McGowan decided to break the silence about Hollywood and one of the most powerful men in it, Harvey Weinstein. She decided to tell her story to the world. Did the world believe her? Not really. As is the case with most silence breakers. “Time” magazine, though recognised her as one of the Silence Breakers and their Person of the year, for speaking out about sexual harassment/assault. Soon after, several other actresses started sharing their stories of assault by the same monster. Her book “Brave” tells her story in her own voice. A singular voice that stands in a large arena full of women with similar stories of assault and rape. . In my eyes, Rose is one of the bravest women in the world today. I have watched several of her interviews and the way she articulates her feelings, emotions and thoughts is mesmerising. She hits the nail on the spot. Every single time. Rose is also an angry woman. A woman who allows herself to feel and feels no need to justify her emotions to anyone. Her fight is to allow all women in society to feel angry for what they have been through. For what they have been made to go through. Two years ago, I finally allowed myself to acknowledge and talk about my own sexual harassment story by a powerful monster, twice my age. When Rose agreed to go live with me, I felt I was dreaming. It was unreal. I thought non-stop about everything that I wanted to ask her, everything that I wanted to tell her about Pakistan. But she’s been asked everything and she’s answered everything…. that’s why I decided to chat with Rose about how she is doing right now, at this moment in her life, let the conversation flow freely…. and it did… it was real and honest, probably uncomfortable for some…. I did think of some solid questions to ask but never got around to them… they are all still floating in my head. We plan to go live again in a week, and this time go deeper into the various layers and constructs of societies all over the world. Would love for you all to join. Until next time folks! 🌹🧚‍♀️✨❤️ . . #ayeshaomar #rosemcgowan #metoo #feminism #feminist #womensupportingwomen #timesup #speakup #crazy #keepitreal #hereandnow

Ayesha Omar further said that when one of her companions from the showbiz industry came out with her story, TV channels began calling Ayesha to ask: ‘Do you believe she’s coming up honesty?’ “And she said ‘I would accept any sexual assault survivor’. They inquired more about sexual harassment acts and that was the first-ever instant when I said ‘yes’. She said that “I will discuss it sometime in the future, yet not today”. I despise everything haven’t named my beast yet I’ve begun discussing it,” Ayesha added up.
