Publisher's Summary

"My life, as you will read, has taken me from one cult to another. BRAVE is the story of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life. I want to help you do the same." (Rose McGowan)
A revealing memoir and empowering manifesto - a voice for generations
Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood.
In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.
Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f--k.
BRAVE is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto - a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE.
Includes two original songs by Rose McGowan.

This book should be required reading for every young woman

Rose McGowan articulates everything you have been thinking and feeling but were too afraid to say out loud for fear of sounding angry or being dismissed as a feminist. Her observations and thoughts are right on target. I hope many women will read this book and that it will cause some much needed change.

Rose is a MOST brave woman!

Rose McGowan might be the bravest woman I've ever heard from. Wish I could call her friend. I have no idea how she came out of the life she has led with so much insight. She is a real freedom fighter. I stand beside her in spirit. She speaks for so many women. It is time women to be heard. I will NOT see movies that are produced by the men she names or any other man that takes on the Hollywood idea of women. She is a hero to me. I respect and love her and her work. Thank you, Rose, for writing this gut wrenching book so full of insight and knowledge. May you have the strength to carry on! You're a warrior. I want and am glad you are on my side. Much love.
