This week it was announced that Rose McGowan, one of the first to accuse Harvey Weinstein in the massive Hollywood sexual misconduct scandal, is facing an arrest warrant “charging her with felony possession of a controlled substance.” 1

In February, the 44-year-old actress left “personal belongings” on a United flight at Dulles Airport that tested positive for narcotics.

According to Andrew Trull, spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, police want to arrange for McGowan to appear in court in Loudoun County, Virginia, to answer the charge.2

“In a tweet on Monday, McGowan, star of TV’s ‘Charmed’ and the movie ‘Grindhouse,’  dismissed the warrant as ‘horseshit,’ asking, ‘Are they trying to silence me?’”

McGowan has been loudly, and rightly so, speaking out against sexual harassment and assault and now a growing number of women have joined her, finally feeling safe enough to do so.
