ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, who successfully sued the late Roger Ailes for sexual harrassment, says the Harvey Weinstein scandal is a "watershed moment" for women. In an interview on CBS This Morning, Carlson said she's "optimistic" that more women will have the courage to speak out. Carlson is credited with paving the way for accusers to speak out against sexual harrassment in the workplace. She sued Ailes, the founder and chairman of Fox News, last year claiming he fired her after she refused his sexual advances. Fox News paid Carlson $20 million to settle the sexual harassment lawsuit. Her allegations led to the resignation of Ailes.
