Publisher's Summary

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 sexualisation. 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*ck.
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.

Really interesting.

An interesting memoir of an intelligent woman. Worth listening to as an audiobook as her delivery is excellent. It made me laugh and get angry in equal parts. Rose pulls no punches, bravo!

Brave, Insightful and thought provoking.

Will change the way you view film and television, will make you examine the ways in which both influence your world view and will inspire you to really self examine.
