"You'd say or hear, 'Stay away from that guy.' 'Watch out for this casting director", Carter explained. She said she believes 'every woman in the Bill Cosby case'.

Whisper campaigns, like the one Carter describes, have always been the main defense mechanism for women dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace. She did not name the man. "They caught him, fired him, and drummed him out of the business". "I wish I could, and if I could I would", Carter said, adding that she's "probably still" recovering from the assault.

Regardless of whether Cosby, who was accused of sexual assault by numerous women, was the "scumbag" who harassed Carter, he wasn't alone.

But in accordance with Carter's wishes, the representative said, "She doesn't want to name any names". So legally I can't do anything.

"That's how you protected yourself: through the grapevine", Carter said.

"[He violated] a lot of people", Carter, 66, told The Daily Beast in an interview released Monday, adding, "He's already being done in". Who's going to believe you? And when you did push back by saying, 'Are you kidding me?' they would say, 'Yes, yes'.

When asked why she has never come forward about her abuse before now, Carter expressed a common concern among women: fear of repercussions. No one's going to believe you, ' she said. You'd see girls being shaken in acting classes.

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.

Carter praised the #MeToo movement for finally taking powerful men to task, and for opening itself up to women not just in powerful positions in Hollywood, but to "maids and caregivers".

"I asked my husband if he was surprised by all the #MeToo stories". "'Yeah, I'm surprised, ' he said". We've been trying to tell you. It's been going on for years.

The legendary Hollywood figure, best known for her role in the "Wonder Woman" TV series, recounted two instances of sexual harassment to The Daily Beast in a new interview. "We've been trying to tell you for a long time and you haven't listened", she added.
