Actress Rose McGowan has criticized
comments Caitlyn Jenner made in accepting Glamour's Woman of
the Year Award.
In a backstage interview with BuzzFeed
News from Carnegie Hall, site of the awards show, Jenner was
asked, “What's the hardest part for you about being a woman?”
“The hardest part about being a woman
is figuring out what to wear,” Jenner answered.
McGowan, 42, replied to the comment in
a Facebook post.
“Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand
what being a woman is about at all,” she wrote. “You want to be
a woman and stand with us – well learn us. We are more than
deciding what to wear. We are more than the stereotypes foisted upon
us by people like you. You're a woman now? Well f**king learn that
we have a VERY different experience than your life of male
“Woman of the year? No, not until
you wake up and join the fight.”
“Being a woman comes with a lot of
baggage. The weight of unequal history. You'd do well to learn it.
You'd do well to wake up. Woman of the year? Not by a long f**king
shot,” McGowan added.
The post included photos of a woman
being raped, a woman giving birth and a woman being stalked at night.
She also posted a meme of Nicole Brown Simpson covered in bruises.
McGowan has since deleted the posts,
