Ex-"Fox & Friends" co-host Gretchen Carlson, who got a $20 million settlement for sex harassment claims against Fox head Roger Ailes, said she was compelled to write her book, "Be Fierce," after hearing from "thousands" of women with "on the scale of Harvey Weinstein stories."

In an interview on "The Joe Pags Show" Thursday on Newsmax TV, Carlson called workplace sex harassment "a silent epidemic in our society."

The interview is at minute 58.

"It's an excruciating choice to come forward," she said. "But when I jumped off my cliff, you know what happened? I started hearing from thousands of women" whose voices "were never heard by anybody . . . It's not just TV and Hollywood, it's everywhere."

"The majority of the women that reached out to me, their stories were so horrific — on the scale of Harvey Weinstein kind of stories," she added.

"These women lost their jobs, never worked in their chosen career field ever again, and we should all be outraged by that, that we are taking away the American dream from women because of some random jerks who can't control themselves on a power trip in the work place."

Carlson said her book is a "call to action for other men and women today: Stop being enablers."

"Please stop being bystanders and come forward and help the women get the courage to speak up and when you see something, say something," she said. "We've heard that about 9/11 but it's applicable to the work place too. That's the only way we're really going to change this, if men help us along."
