Things We Saw Today: Rose McGowan Releasing a Memoir Called ‘Brave’ & We Can Not F-ing Wait!
#RoseArmy get ready because Rose McGowan is releasing a new memoir called Brave.
BRAVE is McGowan’s 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.
The memoir is scheduled for publication in January of 2018 and I for one am very excited to read it. Rose McGowan has spent the last few years being so incredibly outspoken about sexism in Hollywood, with recent events rising her up to the forefront of the Weinstein discussion. She has been outspoken about her feelings (and missteps) and has been unflinchingly honest about her experience. I appreciate her efforts and look forward to hearing what else she has to say.

- Studio Ghibli films have amazing food and En93 on Instagram noticed it and made super tasty recreations of iconic foods from the series. I want the Kiki cake yesterday! (via Kotaku)
- NYC Subway riders are convinced that Wonder Woman can save the day all by herself. We can’t say we disagree. (via Twitter)
- Buffy is back! This time as a middle-grade series, however, we know that we are gonna be picking up these books asap. What is extra great is that in addition the female butt-kicking goodness, there will be some youth-queer representation with Willow. (via Women in Hollywood)
- The Academy has heard the complaints of people worrying about Casey Affleck presenting the award for Best Actress this year considering his past sexual harassment allegations. They have yet to make an official action on the subject, but at least now they can not claim ignorance. (via Change.org)
