After news broke nearly a week ago that Rose McGowan was canceling all of her speaking engagements after dealing with the media storm that surrounded her after being one of the loudest voices in the Weinstein/Hollywood Men Are Scum scandal.
The actress was one of the first women to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment in the New York Times exposé detailing allegations of harassment and assault against the producer.
The Charmed star had previously cancelled an appearance at a Kansas film festival, at which she was due to receive an award. McGowan recently became something of a figurehead of the ongoing crusade against alleged sexual assaulter Harvey Weinstein.
However, Rose will be making a defiant return to the spotlight tomorrow as she speaks about sexual assault at a convention.
