Know about the Gretchen’s sexual harassment claims?

Something trend-breaking happened when Gretchen spoke about having faced sexual harassment during her work in Fox News. And even the CEO had been very demeaning and demotivating to her. She even said that he advanced him with proposals for sexual relations. Gretchen was very clever to record her meetings with Ailes.

But things weren’t easy. When Gretchen started to collect evidences, she got fired from her job. There were other people who backed up the CEO as the best boss that they could have ever worked for and further made it worst for Gretchen.

There were questions about why Gretchen waited long till her job was ended and not filed a lawsuit by quitting on her own. But there must have been fears of being considered as a trouble maker. But investigations were stated in hopes of getting something dug. And then, slowly there were women who were ready to speak about the similar cases that had happened to them.
