McGowan has been a vocal critic of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein over the past week, following allegations of sexual harassment. McGowan found herself suspended from Twitter for 12 hours for violating the platform's rules.

After publicly accusing Weinstein of rape on Twitter on Thursday, McGowan is leading the protest, which has generated support from her close friends, actors and the public alike.

Ladies. Let's do this. #WomenBoycottTwitter. Not because of hate but because I love this platform and know it can be better.
