Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson and 21st Century Fox have reached a $20 million settlement over alleged sexual harassment committed by former network CEO Roger Ailes.
Carlson released a statement in which she thanked people who supported her amid the controversy against her former employer.
"I am gratified that 21st Century Fox took decisive action after I filed my Complaint. I'm ready to move on to the next chapter of my life in which I will redouble my efforts to empower women in the workplace," Carlson wrote. "I want to thank all the brave women who came forward to tell their own stories and the many people across the country who embraced and supported me in their #StandWithGretchen. All women deserve a dignified and respectful workplace."
