Megyn Kelly is a former defense attorney and host of The Kelly File on Fox News. Her memoir, Settle for More, raises Ms. Kelly to a feminist hero we can all relate to.
Who can forget Megyn Kelly’s interview with now President Elect Donald Trump. She asked then, “Shouldn’t we be concerned that the Republican nominee for president is disrespectful of women…and accused of being a sexual predator?”
According to her book, Mr. Trump did not take kindly to Ms. Kelly questions and he retaliated in creepy, personal ways.

I like Megyn Kelly. She’s fearless and always maintains her composure. Through trials and difficult challenges, she remains one of the most respected journalists on television.
Her book takes us behind the scenes of the stories that brought her to where she is today. She speaks about her decision to “settle for more” – a motto that she credits as having transformed her life at home and at work.

She gives honest insight into her life that is inspiring to women. Megyn Kelly is an example of intelligence, strength, and common sense. As women, we can rely on these qualities to get us through whatever comes our way.
