Rose McGowan will be delivering the opening remarks to kick off the Women’s Convention in Detroit Oct 27th – 29th at the Cobo Center. She’s replacing Bernie Sanders as the opening speaker as he stepped aside after criticism that a man should not be opening the convention. The word is that she will be starting off the convention with high energy. She is riding a wave of acknowledgement after speaking out against Harvey Weinstein.
She will also join Friday’s Fighting for Survivors of Sexual Assault in the Age of Betsy Devos Panel at 2:15pm, along with a number of groups fighting sexual violence, as well as survivors of sexual assault.
With the 2017 theme Reclaiming Our Time the convention presents speakers and panels all weekend.
“…working towards collective liberation for women of all races, ethnicities, ages, abilities, sexual identities, gender expressions, immigration statuses, religious faiths, and economic statuses.”
