She does not think a 'silent protest' is going to solve anything.
Meryl Streep has defended herself over a direct criticism from Rose McGowan over the proposed idea for female actresses to wear black at the Golden Globes to protest against sexual harassment in the Hollywood industry. The problem is, there seems to have been a major misunderstanding.

Rose McGowan has been one of the most vocal celebrities out there on the subject of sexual misconduct in the film industry, completely unafraid of naming and shaming the predators and the people who have kept silent on the issue. Since she heard that women like Meryl Streep were planning a silent protest of wearing black at the Golden Globes, she has voiced her opinion once more.
Time has named the women who spoke out against sexual harassment and abuse, and who started the #MeToo movement, as Person of the Year for 2017.
Time Magazine has named its Person of the Year for 2017 as what it describes as the ‘Silence Breakers’ of the #MeToo anti-sexual harassment movement on social media.
Unveiling its annual special issue on Wednesday (December 6th) with the headline “The Silence Breakers: The Voices That Launched a Movement”, Time has acknowledged the women who revealed the pervasiveness of sexual harassment and misconduct across industries from film and music to politics.
The movement is closely associated with actress Alyssa Milano, who tweeted in early October in the wake of the Weinstein allegations: “If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write 'me too' as a reply to this tweet.” It went on to be tweeted nearly a million times in 48 hours by people sharing their stories and denouncing sexual harassment.
McGowan will be arraigned on Thursday over drug possession charges, which she believes are linked to the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Rose McGowan has revealed her intention to plead not guilty when she’s arraigned in court tomorrow on felony drug charges.
The 44 year old former ‘Charmed’ star is charged with possession of a controlled substance, stemming from what prosecutors claim was cocaine allegedly found among McGowan’s belongings that she left behind on a flight to Washington Dulles Airport in Virginia back on January 20th this year.
Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority says McGowan surrendered to Airports Authority Police on Tuesday, in response to a warrant that was issued way back on February 1st.

In a rather unexpected turn of events, an arrest warrant has been issued for Rose McGowan in relation to traces of narcotics found in her abandoned belongings at an airport earlier this year.

Now, in her first public appearance since the scandal hit the headlines, the actress has taken aim at Hollywood during The Women's Convention of Detroit, promising that she's not going to give up in unearthing those who have acted inappropriately and saying "it's time to clean house".

Addressing the audience in the room who hanged on her every word, she said: "I have been silenced for 20 years: I have been slut-shamed, I have been harassed, I've been maligned, and you know what? I'm just like you." Describing each of the women in the room as her own rose, she said that they all "have thorns, and our thorns carry justice. And our thorns carry consequence."
