Since 18 women filed a lawsuit against former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar in January, more and more disturbing allegations have come to light.

The most recent accusation was made by gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman, who is the second member of the 2012 Olympic team to come forward. In October, teammate McKayla Maroney said she'd been abused by Nassar since she was 13 years old.

In a preview for Sunday's episode of “60 Minutes,” Raisman wondered why the focus is on athletes not speaking up, instead of the organization.

“Why are we looking at, why didn't the girls speak up?” she asked. “Why not look at, what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do and Larry Nassar do to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?”

The 23-year-old told CBS News she was first treated by Nassar when she was 15 years old, which she reportedly discusses in her upcoming book, “Fierce.”

She revealed to “60 Minutes” host Jon LaPook that when she sees the smiles on young girls who ask for pictures or autographs, she realizes how badly she wants to “create change, so that they never ever have to go through this.”

According to ESPN, over 140 women are suing Nassar, and Raisman admitted the situation makes her angry.

USA Gymnastics told “60 Minutes” in a statement a “safe sport policy” has been adopted, and the organization is “very sorry” to all victims. It added USA Gymnastics wants to “work with Aly and all interested athletes to keep athletes safe.”
