Gretchen Carlson: How We Can End Sexual Harassment at Work

With the recent revelations of sexual harassment and assault in politics, the media, and entertainment, the following talk from Gretchen Carlson highlights issues and connects with our One Book program on the book We Believe You.

Description from TED: When Gretchen Carlson spoke out about her experience of workplace sexual harassment, it inspired women everywhere to take their power back and tell the world what happened to them. In a remarkable, fierce talk, she tells her story — and identifies three specific things we can all do to create safer places to work. “We will no longer be underestimated, intimidated or set back,” Carlson says. “We will stand up and speak up and have our voices heard. We will be the women we were meant to be.”
