#MeToo: Days of Our Lives' Martha Madison Shares Her Story & Joins the Fight Against Sexual Harassment!

Click here to read-->



For the sake of the cause, daytime stars are taking the time to open up about their stories of sexual advances, sexual harassment and sexual assault in light of the rude awakening in Hollywood. Martha Madison who plays Belle Black on 'Days of Our Lives' joined in to share her "#MeToo" story. Madison revealed that at work in the entertainment industry several persons made sexual advances at her. Also, while working at a bar she was reprimanded for her appearance, weight and her sexiness. She was even approached by a man old enough to be her father who suggested they have sex in the bathroom. Here's her full story: 



Alright...in the interest of sisterhood, here are my thoughts on the whole Weinstein thing... I've been complicit. I don't mean that I've (been) sexually harassed (at least I don't think so), but I've certainly accepted sexual harassment or sexual advances in the workplace as being "par for the course." I've blown off countless workplace advances and simply rolled my eyes at hecklers or "advancers" in both the restaurant industry and the entertainment industry. While I haven't been the victim of the casting couch (thank God), I've been reprimanded numerous times on my appearance, weight and "sexiness." I've gotten "the fat talk" when I was a reasonable size 6, and I've had a handful of change literally thrown in my face at a bar when I refused an old man's "invitation" to perform sexual acts in a bar bathroom. Think about that for a second. A man old enough to be my father asked me to **** him in a bathroom, and when I said no, he gave me a "tip" by fastballing some hard coins into my actual face. It's all gross, but I always chalked it up to some guy just being a douche and simply went on about my business. I never DID anything. I never SAID anything (except to my closest friends and family). I never demanded better. I never fought back. It honestly never occurred to me to make it "a thing." I guess I didn't speak up because I thought it would do more harm than good to cause a fuss and would ultimately prolong the discomfort. I just did my job...made the drink, lost the weight, and swallowed the guilt of knowing I was not capable of pleasing these people. 
As a mother of a splendid and precocious daughter, I promise to do better. I will start by valuing myself. I will hold myself and those around me to a higher standard, and you should too. #MeToo #ForMyDaughter
