For the first time ever, Ellen DeGeneres goes public with her story of being sexually assaulted by her stepfather. Shortly after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, he'd tell her he needed to check her breasts for lumps. She was about 15 years old
She said she hopes that sharing the story will help other girls find their voice and know that it's not okay, ever.
The interview is for an upcoming episode of Netflix's "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman"
