“Dear Hollywood, To the women and men in the entertainment industry who know exactly whom and what I am talking about, I say be brave. Do not work with those you know to be offenders or you are no better than they. Take a stand,” McGowan wrote on Twitter, reports eonline.com.

“You are culpable for your actions. Stop rewarding sociopaths. Every time you sanction abhorrent behaviour, you are aiding and abetting a crime, that makes you no better than the criminal.

“How many more stories do you have to hear before you do the right thing and stop rewarding men that are predators? Why are you so cowardly that you would take the softer, easier way out?

“I can tell you this, your soul is a blighted one if you do so. Your personal legacy, the very fabric of your being, is at stake, so fight for it. I know you have it in you to be better. I know you have it in you to break free from the bonds of secrecy. So do it.”

Last week, the actress participated in the Twitter hashtag #WhyWomenDontReport, and revealed that she had been sexually assaulted by someone in the industry (but did not disclose any names).
