Hillary Clinton appeared on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning, where she discussed sexism with co-host Gretchen Carlson and took the opportunity to say that she "appreciated" Fox News' balanced coverage of her campaign.

"I think it's part of our culture," Clinton said of sexism. "We have certainly gone way beyond where any society has ever been in expanding opportunities for women, giving women every chance to fulfill their god-given potential, but there are remnants and we still see it and we have to fight against it and we have to stand up against it and we need people in my position and your position to call others on it when it happens," she told Carlson.

"We did call them on it at Fox, in fact I think you went on record saying that Fox was the most fair and balanced place during the time when you were running," Carlson said.

"There were a lot of times when I appreciated the commentators and reporters on Fox who did step up and make that clear," Clinton responded.

Clinton also said that Sarah Palin is facing the same sort of sexism that she faced.

"If you're a woman in a high enough, visible enough position, some of that's gonna happen," she said.
