‘Wonder Woman’ Lynda Carter’s #MeToo Story

Lynda Carter, famous for her titular stint on TV's Wonder Woman (1975-1979), has come forward to discuss sexual abuse she endured during her heyday — but won't name names.

In an exclusive MSN interview, Carter, when asked if she had her own #MeToo story after praising the movement, said:

Yes ... He’s already being done in. There’s no advantage in piling on again. And I believe every woman in the Bill Cosby case.

Carter's rep would not confirm or deny whether Cosby himself was her abuser, just that the man in question was someone already named by others as an alleged predator.

Carter said:

I can’t add anything to it. I wish I could. But there’s nothing legally I could add to it, because I looked into it. I’m just another face in the crowd. I wish I could, and if I could I would. And I would talk about it. But it ends up being about me, and not about the people who can talk about it. I don’t want it to be about me, it’s not about me. It’s about him being a scumbag. So legally I can’t do anything. If I could I would.

She went on to say she's still probably recovering from the experience of being assaulted, and recalled a time when a studio employee during her Wonder Woman days was caught having drilled a hole into her dressing room!

The rest of the fascinating interview touches on feminism, sexual objectification and the rest of Carter's career, here.
