Wonder Woman Star Says #MeToo

Lynda Carter opened up about her experiences with sexual misconduct in a new interview

Carter told The Daily Beast that she experienced other incidents of sexual misconduct, including fending off unwanted advances that made her "afraid" as well as dealing with a Peeping Tom - an unnamed camera operator who allegedly drilled a hole in her dressing room wall on the Warner Brothers lot while she was filming her 1970s TV series Wonder Woman.

The actress, who played the titular character in the superhero series from 1975 to 1979, has added her voice to the growing number of Hollywood stars who have opened up about sexual harassment and abuse in the showbiz industry.

Carter insinuated that one of the men who had sexually harassed her had already been named in the wave of the #MeToo movement, saying that he had victimized "a lot of people".

She also revealed that complaints of sexual harassment was not taken seriously, and most of the times the perpetrators would laugh off the accusations as a joke thus creating an element of deniability.

"If a man tried something, I would say, 'Are you kidding me?'" Carter told the Daily Beast. If you did come forward, no one would believe you, said Carter. She said that he was later fired.

According to the report in a leading daily, the attackers have been identified while one of them was nabbed by the traffic police. Kukatpally police registered a case of murder and have begun a probe to nab three other suspects who are now absconding.

Carter also shared that she suffered further sexual harassment and abuse during her career from at least one person, and though she didn't identify him, she said he is now facing an impending legal punishment. She did concede that the punishment "isn't enough", however.

"He's already being done in". While she had considered taking legal action against him, she thought it wouldn't help to pile on. At that point, Carter added "emphatically", according to the Daily Beast: "I believe every woman in the Bill Cosby case". "I'm just another face in the crowd", she said. I wish I could. And I would talk about it. But it ends up being about me, and not about the people who can talk about it.

She added, "I don't want it to be about me, it's not about me". It's about him being a scumbag, ' she said.

"That's how you protected yourself: through the grapevine", Carter said. "I asked my husband if he was surprised by all the #MeToo stories". 'Yeah, I'm surprised, ' he said. Ask any woman, they're not surprised. It's not news to us, but it is news to you. "You'd say or hear, 'Stay away from that guy.' 'Watch out for this casting director.'..." We've been trying to tell you. "We've been trying to tell you for a long time and you haven't listened". Why would they lie? We were women's lib, burn the bra.

The Me Too movement began in October 2017 and was first coined by Tarana Burke, a civil rights activist, and was popularized by Alyssa Milano when she encouraged women to use the hashtag #metoo on social media.
