It’s more common than you might think |

April 21, 2017

This week Bill O’Reilly was ousted from his anchor chair on the heels of numerous allegations of sexual harassment and racial discrimination (which he denies). It wasn’t the first time the Fox star has been accused of harassment — a former producer for his show accused him of harassment in 2004, and reportedly settled the case for $9 million. O’Reilly stayed on air.

But public tolerance for alleged harassment has fortunately diminished in the decades since Anita Hill testified about Justice Clarence Thomas. At Fox, the floodgates opened after Motto columnist and former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson came forward in 2016 with claims of harassment against Roger Ailes (who also denies the claims).

At TIME and Motto, we've continually covered sexual harassment, from Carlson’s columns to a piece on the dangers of arbitration clauses to an exclusive interview with another Fox host who says she “may have missed some signs." One thing many accusers seem to have in common is that they leaned on other women to support them in speaking out. Women are essential to one another in the workplace, for this and many other reasons.
