Throughout her extraordinary memoir, in such chapters as "To Conquer, You Must First Conquer Yourself" and "Don't Be Victimized Twice", Allred offers colorful, sometimes shocking, examples of self-empowerment from her personal and professional life. Presenting nearly 50 of her most memorable cases, she takes us deep inside the justice system to show how it's possible to win, even in the face of staggering odds.
Allred opens our eyes not only to the significant positive strides we've made in recent decades, but more important, to how much further we still have to go to empower all members of society, especially women, minorities, and others who are deprived of their rights. Fight Back and Win is a powerful testament to Gloria Allred's trailblazing career and the battles she has fought alongside countless brave individuals to win justice for us all.

I love learning about new things, theories and history by way of audible. I like reading actual books for fiction :)
In the top 5, it's one of few 6-7 hours books that I listened to non stop until I finished it.
Lisa Bloom's 'Think' ... Lisa is Gloria Allred's daughter and that is what lead me to her book, they are very similar in their attitude, outlook and ways of thinking about things. They also have a very similar sense of humour. Both great books for women, or men for that matter.
I laughed every time she impersonated most of the men mentioned in the book!
A must read/ listen for any woman, this lady and her willingness to fight unfairness, even if there is a possibility of losing should be an inspiration to all women. It is to me anyway. If you don't take on what challenges you, you allow it to defeat you anyway.
Enjoy, she's sharp as a tac and a crack up too :)
