What to do if you’re a woman being sexually harassed at work — advice from Gretchen Carlson, someone who knows

‘We still live in a he-said, she-said culture, unfortunately’

Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, who famously brought down the network’s longtime chief, Roger Ailes, last year after filing a sexual harassment lawsuit, appeared at the 8th Annual Women in the World New York Summit for a discussion about her experience and dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace. Moderator and CBS journalist Leslie Stahl asked Carslon what women who might be facing similar harassment at their jobs should do to take action. Carlson listed out three key pieces of advice for women on how to begin building a case, and, Nancy Erika Smith, the president and founder of Smith Mullin, the law firm that represented Carlson, explained one thing women definitely do not want to do if they are being sexually harassed at work.
