Journalist, author, and advocate Gretchen Carlson (@GretchenCarlson) paved the way for #metoo with her historic 2016 sexual harassment complaint against the chairman of Fox News. Named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World,” and author of New York Times bestsellers "Be Fierce"and "Getting Real," Carlson is one of America’s most successful news anchors and a globally recognized advocate for women’s empowerment. Carlson previously hosted “The Real Story” on Fox News, and co-hosted the number-one rated cable morning news show, “Fox and Friends," for more than seven years. Carlson’s recently announced return to television, as host and producer of A+E and Lifetime Network documentaries, breaks the barriers and blacklisting she faced after saying “enough” to harassment. Her comeback is a beacon of hope for other brave women demoted, fired, or blacklisted from their chosen careers after reporting sexual harassment.Carly sat down with Gretchen Carlson in New York for a conversation about courage in the face of a powerful status quo.
