Ashley Graham Points Out Importance Of #MeToo With Her Own Harrowing Experience Ashley Graham Points Out Importance Of #MeToo With Her Own Harrowing Experience

"If I knew what I know now, and knew that all of these women were standing up and saying "me too", I would have smacked that guy and said' he's a paedophile' because I was 17", she reminded the audience. "I would have called my agency, who knows what would have happened".

While Graham may have been lucky that day, she was sadly not so on another set, shooting a big campaign when she was 17 (which she also talked about in her July Glamour cover story.) She describes a truly very bad experience for any woman, but especially a young one.

"He lured me into this hallway, pushed me into a closet", she continued. Despite the hashtag #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse making the rounds in October - spearheaded by model Cameron Russell - there has been no industry-wide effort to bring about substantive change (as Hollywood is doing with the #TimesUp movement). Graham - who has modeled since her teens - worked with Richardson, and described to the ladies of the view what that was like. Then he exposed himself and said, "Look at what you did to me all day long, now touch it", Graham explained. "You want those images in your portfolio". I knew I could be a victim, who knows?'

The 30-year-old went on to share that during a campaign photoshoot, a photography assistant pulled her aside and said he needed to talk to her. "Men and women are watching and they're saying 'You know?"

In recent months, several models have come forward with sexual assault and harassment allegations against the 52-year-old, claims which Richardson denies. "I just prayed that no one would find out, because if they found out that he did that to me, I thought, 'I'm never going to get hired for a job again, '" she revealed, adding that she was anxious people would think she was "the hard model".

"I thought to myself, I'm never going to be hired for a job again". "I'm going to be the hard model. Nobody's going to want to work with me again".

"The movement is working". "The movement is working", Graham agreed.
