It isn't surprising that Lynda Carter says she was sexually abused while playing Wonder Woman in the iconic '70s TV show. But it does perfectly capture the sickening hypocrisy of Hollywood, which has played lip service to women's empowerment for decades — all while systematically exploiting and ensuring their oppression.

In a Daily Beast interview, Carter discussed the personal experiences that have led her to become such an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement, which spotlights women chronicling stories of sexual misconduct on social media. A longtime feminist and activist, Carter was the symbol for female power of her time — even as she endured the industry's rampant sexual abuse and harassment.
