Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson hit the headlines when her sexual harassment case against Roger Ailes, the late Fox CEO, resulted in his firing and a purported $20 million settlement. Carlson received emails, texts, phone calls and letters from women sharing stories of sexual harassment. She explains that sexual harassment has nothing to do with how a woman looks, what job she holds or how strong she is. It is a manifestation of the misuse and abuse of power. Carlson vowed to become the face and voice of a growing movement of fierce women demanding their rightful place in society. Her first platform may be her volunteer position as chairman of the board of the Miss American Organization, and she knows its issues from the inside since she was a Miss America. Carlson draws many insights from anecdotal evidence; these moving stories show the nature of an insidious, pervasive problem. getAbstract suggests her rallying cry as required reading for leaders, employees, educators and parents.
In this summary, you will learn
- How sexual harassment disempowers women,
- What strategies help counteract common misconceptions about sexual harassment, and
- What women can do to respond to harassment and protect themselves.
