Tara Reade has Rose McGowan in her corner to make sure to hold the media to account.
On May 31st, Rose McGowan slammed The New York Times on Twitter for a Tara Reade article titled, “To better understand Tara Reade, who accused Joe Biden of sexual assault, The New York Times interviewed nearly 100 friends, relatives, co-workers and neighbours and reviewed court records and her writings.”.
McGowan initially tweeted “And you are proud of this? @nyt YOU ARE TRASH” with the article attached. She then tweeted a link to the same article, with the caption “To better understand Rape Culture, read this headline. @NYT Did Biden’s campaign help you write this too? You are actual scum. I feel violated by this headline and so will most rape victims.”
As an advocate for the MeToo Movement, McGowan’s support of Tara Read is built on her personal experience in being “silenced down.”
“I have been silenced for 20 years,” Rose said in 2017 at the Women’s Convention in Detroit. “I have been slut-shamed. I have been harassed. I have been maligned, and you know what? I’m just like you because what happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in this society. And that cannot stand, and it will not stand.”
McGowan was among 87 women who were raped by Harvey Weinstein. Convicted earlier this year, Weinstein is serving 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault.
McGowan’s critique of The New York Times reminds Americans of the need to hold media accountable for their language and the message they are sending to the victims of rape. It also highlights the importance of Tara Reade’s accusations and the right of every woman to tell their stories in a dignified way and without repercussion.
