Weinstein, through his spokesperson, has denied “any allegations of non-consensual sex.”
The fallout from the scandal has been swift. The mega-producer lost both his job and his wife within days of two exposés that detailed decades of alleged sexual misconduct.
The stories have also sparked a #MeToo movement among women who used the hashtag to share their stories of assault and harassment at the hands of men.
According to its site, the Women’s Convention will bring together all genders “for a weekend of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums and intersectional movement building to continue the preparation going into the 2018 midterm elections.”
McGowan will offer opening remarks and is reportedly set to participate in the panel, “Fighting for Survivors of Sexual Assault in the Age of Betsy Devos.”
