In Hollywood McGowan was continually on display, and stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. She escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. She was supposed to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. This is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto: an exposé about an entertainment industry built on systemic misogyny.-- Adapted from book jacket.

“Brave” by Rose McGowen is impossible to read. She is so angry that she cusses constantly, and uses graphic sexual terminology to explain her feelings. Men and women at the homeless shelter communicate similarly, and yes, I know this because I have been there. Bummer, I wanted to be supportive of her. Maybe when she is older, and further away from the anger, she will find a way to express herself so that others can hear her.
