Publisher's Summary

When Gretchen Carlson made the decision to "walk off the set" and speak up about sexual harassment in the workplace, she jumped off a cliff by herself, but it led to a new calling: empowering women to reclaim their power against any injustice.

After the former Miss America, mother of two, and star news anchor stood up and spoke out, women all over the world joined the movement and began to take back their lives, careers, and dignity. Gretchen became the voice for the voiceless. Be Fierce shares Gretchen's experience and powerful stories from the thousands of women who have reached out to her who refuse to submit to intimidation of any kind. Gretchen will also share the wisdom and research of lawyers, psychologists, and other experts helping to confront this problem and advance what has become an international conversation about women refusing to shut up and sit down.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Greatly Needed Life Wisdom

Gretchen not only is a great example to our daughters about being fierce, she's thrived in doing so herself. As a father of 3 wonderful daughters I'm thankful for her willingness to open her life up and share her private life in such a personal way. Note to Gretchen: "Be not weary in well doing, for in due season you will reap if you don't give up." Galatians 6:9. Keep up the movement!!

A very educational book

This book served to provide me the perspective that women have to navigate everyday at work. One hears stories of predators and rapists and considers these extreme outliers but I had never considered that every woman has to navigate things I have never had to about as a man in the workplace. This was a sobering lesson about things I had never stopped to think about deeply enough. I would recommend this book to everyone but most importantly to all men. The issues discussed here are more a men’s issue than a women’s issue. We all have a role to play.

A must read for all parents!

Beautifully written and read. I admire the way you share your Christian faith and the courage you had to take this on. You are humble and authentic. One suggestion I would add to the book since I am the same age as you is the awful campaign by former President Clinton and former candidate Hillary Clinton lodged against all women accusers and especially Paula and Monica. For me as a young lawyer at that time, this was a shocking revelation from the highest office in the land that we must protect young women and all women in the workplace. I realize you could fill a library with books on the powerful political men who have misused their office or title. Thank you for your work in nonprofits and all you do to continue this movement.

A Must Read

Thank you for writing this Gretchen. I have not been a victim of harassment or assault and your book makes me see why this is true. I now realize there have been multiple attempts by colleagues/patients/managers to initiate this type of behavior and I just shut it down. I was never aware of this behavior trait in myself until now. I feel a need to help others be as courageous and bold to stand up for themselves. Thank you for sharing your education on this subject. I am so impressed with the diligence you needed to make your company and the world listen to you about this issue.

Victims stories staffed with political bs

I can't finish the book even for promised extra credit from Amazon. Don't think that it's right place to promote politics in here. Totally irrational approach to the problem of sexual assault. Also it's not the only dissapointment from Dems.
