The women said they were put in traumatising situations and are still affected by the experience to this day.
“Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatizing, to downright illegal. And a few of us were put in positions where we felt physically unsafe,” the letter continues. “More than one woman on our show had her career trajectory threatened.”
Last week, former One Tree Hill writer Audrey Wauchope tweeted allegations about a man in a “position in power” on the show responsible for years of inappropriate behavior.
“He’s a man in a position of power who was allowed to run a television show for years where this behaviour continuously went on,” she tweeted.
“Sometimes we wouldn’t luck out and he’d just squeeze his disgusting body in between us and put his arms around us, grinning. He pet hair. He massaged shoulders. I know he did more but not to me so they’re not my stories to share.”
