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 sexualisation. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, 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. Brave is 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 shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be Brave.
