Rose McGowan offered a rallying cry to women — and a serious dig — in the wake of a bombshell New York Times report in which numerous women claimed that famed producer Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed them.

"Women fight on. And to the men out there, stand up. We need you as allies. #bebrave," she wrote on Twitter Thursday.

"Anyone who does business with ___ is complicit. And deep down you know you are even dirtier. Cleanse yourselves," she added, not naming Weinstein.

She also retweeted a Twitter user who offered words of encouragement.

“Thinking of you today. A brave, strong woman, who always told the truth and who deserves so much better,” the tweet read.

McGowan was one of the more prominent names featured in the wide-ranging story, which alleged that the movie mogul, 65, made unwanted sexual advances on multiple women stretching back nearly 30 years.

The "Charmed" actress reportedly encountered Weinstein in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.

Though the Times article does not divulge details on their encounter, McGowan and Weinstein reportedly reached a $100,000 settlement in 1997, when the actress was 23.

According to legal documents, Weinstein settled not as an admission of guilt, but in order to "avoid litigation and buy peace."

McGowan appeared in the 1996 horror flick "Scream," for which Weinstein served as an executive producer.

While McGowan declined to comment on the allegations, actress Ashley Judd discussed her own encounter with Weinstein.

Judd told the Times that she met him in a Beverly Hills hotel 20 years ago for what she thought was a business meeting. She was instead sent to Weinstein's room, where he was waiting in a bathrobe.

The actress said he then asked if she would give him a massage or watch him shower.

"Women have been talking about Harvey amongst ourselves for a long time, and it's simply beyond time to have the conversations publicly," she said.

Weinstein's attorney Charles Harder told The Hollywood Reporter that he is preparing a lawsuit against the Times, saying that the story is full of "false and defamatory statements."
