After several days of women coming forward to share their powerful stories of harassment, today, Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio took to Instagram to share her own experience with harassment at work. Sampaio alleges that the French men’s magazine Lui “aggressively pressured” her to pose nude on a shoot and then published photos that violated her “no nudity” contract, People reports.

“Throughout the shoot day, I needed to constantly defend myself and reiterate my boundaries with no nude images, making sure I covered myself as best as I could,” she writes in her post. But, she says, when she reviewed the images from the shoot, there were parts of her body that had been accidentally exposed that she didn’t want to be. And though she states that she spoke up and “was assured that those images would not be used,” the magazine’s cover image still ran with nudity.

People reports that Lui magazine had not replied to its request for comment.

“Like so may models, I’ve had negative experiences in the past where I felt pressured to pose nude,” she writes in the post. “On many occasions where the shoot was to not have nudity, I would arrive on set and the photographer or stylist would pressure, cajole or demand that I pose nude because I had done it in the past. I was bullied. Many times, i Was showed nude images of myself as examples to coerce me into posing nude, and whenever I stood my ground and refused, I was criticized and judged as being difficult.”

Sampaio writes that she is working to pursue legal action against the magazine, but wanted to speak out in the hopes that it will help others. “I want to do what I can to prevent this from happening to me again, and to others…As models continue to share their harrowing experiences, the bully and abuse that is systemic within the fashion industry, will come to light.”
