Always on the forefront of the fight for women’s rights and empowerment, Carlson reported on and produced a 30-part award-winning series about domestic violence. In 2016, Carlson became the face of sexual harassment in the workplace, gracing the cover of Time magazine and standing strong in her determination to promote a safe work environment for all women.
