2017 was a year full of political and social conversations and change that undeniably painted an honest, modern American portrait both in print and on screen, broadcasted live on the world's stage. One face and voice that is actively shaping and rallying an aggressive, glass-ceiling shattering empowering movement in 2018 is: Rose McGowan. The artist and activist has made wildfire headlines by sharing her story, using social media as a platform to raise awareness of the ongoing, systematic sexual misconduct that Hollywood forces onto women and the silence that is systematically projected and imprinted on their experiences.

A 2017 Time's Person of the Year and proud voice within the #MeToo campaign and her own movement #ROSEARMY, today McGowan released her incredibly valiant memoir BRAVE and premieres the first of her five part docu-series Citizen Rose on E!. As part of her release, Rose appeared on The View to share emotional details of her experiences, both past and present, and spoke on her empowered journey in finding her own freedom.

While the new book and TV show give Rose a bigger platform than ever to share her struggles and experiences as a sexual assault survivor, and a woman, it's far from the first time that Rose has stood for feminism and the experience of a woman. A vintage interview on the same talk show, which took place as the actress was on the hit TV show Charmed, alluded to the stances that she stands for without scratching the surface of the depth and detail she shares today. Even with simple talk about female stereotypes and the Salem Witch Trials, you can tell that she was a strong feminine force to be reckoned with, something that should be explored to the fullest with her new ventures.

Watch the trailer for Citizen Rose, premiering tonight, below.
