Be Fierce – Gretchen Carlson
Be Fierce – Stop Harassment and Take Your Power Back.
In BE FIERCE, Gretchen shares her own experiences, as well as powerful and moving stories from women in many different careers and fields who decided they too weren’t ready to shut up and sit down. Gretchen became a voice for the voiceless.
In this revealing and timely book, Gretchen shares her views on what women can do to empower and protect themselves in the workplace or on a college campus, what to say when someone makes suggestive remarks, how an employer’s Human Resources department may not always be your friend, and how forced arbitration clauses in work contracts often serve to protect companies rather than employees. Her groundbreaking message encourages women to stand up and speak up in every aspect of their lives.
Gretchen also discusses why this fight will require both women and men working together to ensure that our daughters and sons will have a brighter future.
“Using your voice and speaking your truth is a step toward freedom. Be a ‘Fierce’ force because that’s what it takes to change the world.”
―Maria Shriver, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist, New York Times bestselling author, and founder of The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement
“Gretchen Carlson’s very brave and public stand against sexual harassment gave countless women the courage to fight back and is teaching our daughters (and sons) three very important words: it’s not okay.”
―Katie Couric, award-winning journalist and cancer advocate
“Gretchen Carlson is not only FIERCE but brave as she pours sunlight on this scourge that hides in plain sight. Sexual harassment is an issue that all of us should be concerned about not just women. I encourage every man to read this book.”
―Larry Wilmore, Emmy Award-winning producer, actor, comedian, writer
“Gretchen’s experiences in the workplace will be all too familiar to women of all professions and walks of life-many of whom she’s enlisted to help tell their own stories of resilience, courage, and justice in the face of sexual harassment and assault. Her book should serve as a guide for both women and men, for interns and executives alike, on confronting and preventing sexual harassment, and finding the strength to handle the most impossible of situations with ferocity and grace.”
―U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill
“This book is a must read for any woman who has ever felt victimized or harassed and for any man who knows it’s his duty to do the right thing. Gretchen is a warrior and an inspiration.”
―Paul Feig, writer, producer, director of Bridesmaids, Spy, Ghostbusters, and The Heat
“Gretchen Carlson’s landmark sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News CEO Roger Ailes shattered the culture of silence for women at Fox News and forced Ailes to resign. Now, in this gripping new book, she shares stories from women all across the country and exposes the epidemic of sexual harassment in the workplace — and how women can fight to end it.”
―Gabriel Sherman, Vanity Fair Special Correspondent and author of the New York Times bestseller The Loudest Voice in the Room
“Gretchen Carlson is a fighter through and through and she is using her voice to put herself on the right side of history on this issue.”
―Billie Jean King, founder of the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative
“BE FIERCE offers readers pages of resources, as well as Carlson’s plea for everyone to see the issue as nonpartisan. Sexual harassment, she writes, “is not a Republican issue. It’s not a Democratic issue. No harasser stops to ask what party you belong to before he acts. It’s a human issue, a women’s issue, a men’s issue. It’s everyone’s issue.”―Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times
“Former Fox News anchor Carlson (Getting Real) draws from her own experience of being sexually harassed to illuminate an epidemic of inappropriate behavior in the workplace, and to educate women on their rights […] Carlson talks to a civil rights attorney about what people who have been harassed can expect after reporting incidents to human resources, provides data from sociological studies on sexist patterns in the workplace, and explores the complicated machinations of forced arbitration clauses often buried in job contracts. She includes a 12-point plan for handling harassment, outlining how to document incidents and whom to tell and when. Carlson further advises on the need to keep young women safe on college campuses, teach children respectful behavior, and recruit men as allies in the workplace. […] Carlson’s inclusion of her own stories is courageous, and her commitment to making sexual harassment a nonpartisan issue is admirable.”―Publishers Weekly
“As an accomplished violinist, former Miss America, and Fox News commentator, Carlson is no stranger to the spotlight, but she faced one of the brightest and harshest lights when she filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes in 2015. The results-a torrent of verbal abuse from critics and thousands of messages from women sharing their own experiences-spurred her into dedicated advocacy for fighting against sexual harassment, with BE FIERCE as her latest effort. […] Carlson’s drive to dispel the myths around harassment and to offer guidance as to how speak out against it remains strong throughout. […] Carlson’s uncompromising passion on this issue is highly welcome.”
