FEATURED MOVER & SHAKER: Gretchen Carlson
Lifetime aired a new documentary Gretchen Carlson: Breaking the Silence on January 14, 2018. The documentary does an excellent job examining a number of allegations of sexual misconduct and retaliation, including involving a population that receives very little attention—low income earners, specifically McDonald’s. Workers who do not typically have the resources or voice to fight back. If they complain, they are likely to experience retaliation and lose their jobs. Gretchen Carlson is a former Fox News host, and a powerful voice in the #MeToo movement. Her courage to fight back and file a law suit against Fox and Roger Ailes made her instrumental in the call for change. Ms. Carlson is currently backing a bipartisan bill to end forced arbitration in the workplace.
