Rose McGowan with Afua Hirsch
A Brave Woman
Monday 13 August, 15:15-16:15
Baillie Gifford Main Theatre, Charlotte Square
In 2018 the film industry, for so long a haven of misogyny and sexism, has found itself at the heart of a worldwide ‘cataclysmic global reckoning’, in which women everywhere are standing up defiantly against predatory male behaviour. In Brave, the American actress Rose McGowan recounts her fight against the Hollywood machine. Today she talks to Afua Hirsch about her campaign to help all women reclaim their lives.
