Gretchen Carlson vows to be back on TV. Soon.

“I will work in TV news again, and this time I look forward to being in an environment where I feel safe and respected,” the former Fox News anchor tells Good Housekeeping. “I’m confident it’s out there.”

In a span of less than 30 days last summer, Carlson left Fox News after her contract wasn’t renewed, she sued network CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment, an investigation was launched, and Ailes resigned.

Carlson says her daughter has been learning about her story both at home and at school “in her current-events class.”

It’s incredibly powerful to have your 13-year-old child tell you how proud she is of you. [She] has told me she’s done things at school this year to stand up for herself that she might not have done before, and she said, “Mommy, I saw what you did, and that’s why I did what I did.”
