Writing in the #WhyWomenDontReport hashtag, which is dedicated to enumerating the patriarchal reasons why many women don't report sexual harassment or rape to authorities, McGowan said that her rapist was a Hollywood studio head and that she had been told no one would believe her story.

Earlier this year, McGowan shared a story about her sexual assault in response to the lenient sentence given to the Stanford rapist Brock Turner.
