Married At First Sight Star Reveals Horrifying Sexual Abuse

Brave Married At First Sight Star, Zoe Hendrix, has spoken out about horrifying sexual abuse when she was just five years of age.

She took to instagram to upload a photo of the popular conversation-starting phrase, ‘me too’, which was started by US Actress Alyssa Milano in response to the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal, and shared her heartbreaking story via her caption.

#MeToo I was 5 years old when I was raped. For too long this attack has cast a dark and shameful cover over me. I have blamed myself and for decades I have fought an internal battle of shame and guilt. I have tried to ignore the anxiety and depression that comes with trauma. I have been lost, scared and confused. I have battled my body and my mind. It has been a fucking life sentence. But no more. I have been silent in the belief that maybe by burying this disgusting secret I would escape it. But it has chased me and I know that only light can drive it out. Reading the outpouring of response to this #metoo movement ( started on Twitter to highlight the epidemic of sexual harassment and assault) has been fucking overwhelming in the last few days. It gave me strength. It also scared the shit out of me. The bravery of these women. And I couldn't not add my voice to the chorus - knowing it may help someone else raise theirs. To all the others who have experienced harassment, abuse or assault, please know that you are not alone, there are others that will stand with you. That will believe you. There is help and there is hope. You life will not be defined by the heinous actions of another. You life matters, your voice will be heard, you are not to blame and you are not alone. ❤️
