Fox News settles sex, race discrimination claims for $10 million

Sexual harassment scandals brought down Fox News's chairman, the late Roger Ailes, along with Bill O'Reilly, one of its leading commentators.

What should you do if you are sexually harassed at work?

Last week, we talked about sexual harassment prevention and how companies that provide this training are getting far more requests than ever before. This coincides with the expanding national discussion about sexual assault and sexual harassment in the workplace, and it is important to see this matter to cause some genuine movement towards progress.

Sexual harassment prevention training requests are on the rise

The Weinstein saga is disgusting and heartbreaking

For today's post, we aren't even going to use a source article because it doesn't need one. All we need to say is two words: Harvey Weinstein. You need not do anything else other than type those two words into Google and you will know all of the horror stories that have plagued women in the acting industry for decades. The news coverage is inescapable, and for good reason. This was an "open secret" -- a phrase that is terrifyingly common in these stories -- and finally Weinstein is receiving backlash for his disgusting behavior.
