About Grandma’s Famous Jimmy Cake

Here she comes – 1989. Miss America!

And she comes with lawsuit …Yes, that is correct! Gretchen Carlson filed the lawsuit against her boss, one of the most powerful man,

an American television executive Roger Ailes.

She says Ailes repeatedly made advances toward her, calling her “sexy”, asking for a sexual relationship during a meeting in his office and so on….

Because she says “NO”…long story short her contract was not renewed.

So, my dear readers why I am bringing this story to you?

Because, Gretchen Carlson courage is inspiring.

So many victims of sexual harassment are intimidated into staying silent.

Well, this Miss America was not. She stood her ground and also made her own statement.

“I have strived to empower women and girls throughout my entire career. Although this was a difficult step to take, I had to stand up for myself and speak out for all women and the next generation of women in the workplace.”

Dear my readers, please find her twitter account and support her.
