Warning: graphic language in tweets

Actress and singer Rose McGowan says she was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood executive, who she only refers to as a "studio head."

In a series of tweets to her 635,000 followers, the Grindhouse and Charmed star said the assault had been "an open secret in Hollywood" and she didn't report it after being discouraged by a lawyer.

"A [female] criminal attorney said because I'd done a sex scene in a film I would never win against the studio head," she wrote in one tweet posted Thursday.

Using the hashtag #WhyWomenDontReport, McGowan is one of many women speaking out about sexual assault following the release of a tape last week which caught Donald Trump making comments about groping women.

A day after the Trump tape was leaked, Canadian writer Kelly Oxford, who has more than 700,000 followers, asked women to tweet their "first assaults," using the hashtag #notokay.

Women: tweet me your first assaults. they aren't just stats. I'll go first:

Old man on city bus grabs my "p***y" and smiles at me, I'm 12.

What followed was a flood of responses: Oxford reported that 30 million people had read or contributed to her feed within a five-day span.

At one point, the L.A.-based author and screenwriter said she was receiving 50 tweets per minute from people about their experiences.

While Oxford maintains the #notokay campaign isn't affiliated with a political organization, McGowan is an active supporter of a social media movement called #WomenCanStopTrump. She has also become known in Hollywood for calling out sexist and questionable, but accepted, practices.

Can there be any doubt that both the USA and Canada need national inquiries into sex abuse and child sex abuse? 

Lady Gaga also spoke in support of the hashtag, having previously revealed how she was raped by a music producer when she was a teenager.

She says that reading tweets from rape surivors was like "re-living it all over again."

Amber Tamblyn

McGowan's declaration followed a similar confession by fellow actress Amber Tamblyn.

In a lengthy Instagram post on Sunday, Tamblyn revealed a former boyfriend (who she did not name) was abusive and detailed a night in which he assaulted her at a club, forcefully grabbing her by her genitals. The caption is under a photo of Trump kissing pageant queen Olivia Culpo.

“Without going into all the of the details, I will tell you that my ex did show up, and came up to me in the crowd," the actress wrote. "He’s a big guy, taller than me. The minute he saw me, he picked me up with one hand by my hair and with his other hand, he grabbed me under my skirt by my vagina— my p----?— and lifted me up off the floor, literally, and carried me, like something he owned, like a piece of trash, out of the club. His fingers were practically inside of me, his other hand wrapped tightly around my hair. I screamed and kicked and cried."

Tamblyn went on to say that others intervened and stopped anything further from happening, and she was physically and emotionally scarred by the event.


Gretchen Carlson

It also came at the end of a week in which multiple women lodged sexual-assault complaints against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and one month after former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson won a $20 million settlement in her sexual-harassment lawsuit against ex-CEO Roger Ailes. 

Though he was forced out of the top job at Fox News, he still reportedly walked away with twice the amount of money Carlson received.

Of course he did. Can you say 'the culture of rape'?

McGowan says she was fired from her talent agency after posting audition instructions for a film last year that asked women to wear something that "shows off cleavage."
