In 2016, Fox News came under fire after sexual assault allegations were made against former chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, who died in 2017 at the age of 77. Gretchen Carlson sued Ailes for sexual harassment and was awarded $20 million in damages. Ailes resigned from the network, but denied all allegations.
Shortly after, Megyn Kelly detailed her experience facing years of harassment from Ailes, in her memoir Settle for More. Many more women came forward about being harassed by the Fox News executive in the following years, thanks in part to these two women speaking out.
Kelly left Fox News in 2017 and went on to host her own segment on NBC's Today, but was fired a year later after making comments defending blackface. The journalist apologized for her words, but hasn't worked in media since.

The minute-and-a-half trailer already has people theorizing Oscar nominations — and it's not hard to see why. The three leading women are all Academy Award winners or nominees, plus the rest of the star-studded cast is equally impressive. The scandal sparked part of the #MeToo movement, and the three women at the forefront are definitely capable of telling the story in a thorough and deserving way.
