In BE FIERCE: Stop Harassment and Take Your Power Back (Center Street/Hachette Book Group, October 17, 2017), acclaimed television journalist Gretchen Carlson takes on the subject of sexual harassment and empowerment. When Carlson, a former Fox News Channel host, decided to speak up about sexual harassment in the workplace, it led to a new calling: empowering women to reclaim their power against injustice and abuse.
Before the nation awoke to the problem of sexual harassment toward women, Gretchen was at the forefront in denouncing this abuse and advocating for victims’ rights. Her bravery and willingness to fight back against mistreatment has made her a trailblazer on issues related to sexual harassment, violence, and abuse towards women. Gretchen’s tenacity to fight back has empowered thousands of women to break their silence and denounce abuse in all aspects of life, including their workplace, home, college, and school.
“In BE FIERCE, I help to give a voice to the voiceless victims who in the past were told to remain silent. I tell the stories of various women whose careers and lives where shattered by harassment and violence. I also offer advice on how to speak up and fight back against injustice,” comments Gretchen Carlson.
