Fighting Harassment at Every Turn

(PODCAST) Meet former TV anchor Nita Wiggins who is bravely addressing the harassment she faced during her career

Harassment comes in many forms.

One of our main goals is empowering working women. In 2017, I was encouraged and uplifted by the #MeToo movement. Brave women came out of the shadows and spoke loudly about sexual misconduct and harassment in the workplace. My resolution for 2018 is to build a community of women to take the #MeToo conversation forward.

That's why I’ve launched the #NowWhat campaign, a discussion to cultivate real change in women's issues such as workplace misconduct, gender wage inequality, work/life balance, and boardroom under-representation. Let your voice be heard.

Meet Nita Wiggins, an esteemed journalism professor at ESJ-Paris where she is training the next generation of journalists.

Her upcoming book, “Civil Rights Baby: My Story of Race, Sports, and Breaking Barriers in American Journalism” is the story of her 20 years in American television.

Despite her major success, Nita was exposed to much harassment in her career. The late Roger Ailes no longer runs Fox News and Bill O’Reilly is gone from the anchor chair but painful stories from the past still linger. Nita says her health and career, as well as that of other female TV employees were adversely affected by institutionalized sexual discrimination.
