Publisher's Summary

Part manual, part manifesto, a humorous yet incisive guide to navigating subtle sexism at work - a Lean In for the Buzzfeed generation that provides real-life career advice and humorous reinforcement for a new generation of professional women.

It was a fight club - but without the fighting and without the men. Every month the women would huddle in a friend's apartment to share sexist job frustrations and trade tips for how best to tackle them. Once upon a time, you might have called them a consciousness-raising group. But the problems of today's working world are more subtle, less pronounced, harder to identify - and harder to prove - than those of their foremothers. These women weren't just there to vent. They needed battle tactics. And so the fight club was born.

Hard hitting and entertaining, Feminist Fight Club blends personal stories with research, statistics, and no-bullsh*t expert advice. Bennett offers a new vocabulary for the sexist workplace archetypes women encounter every day - such as the Manterrupter, who talks over female colleagues in meetings, or the Himitator, who appropriates their ideas - and provides practical hacks for navigating other gender landmines in today's working world. With Feminist Mad Libs, a Negotiation Cheat Sheet, and fascinating historical research, Feminist Fight Club tackles both the external (sexist) and internal (self-sabotaging) behaviors that plague women in the workplace - as well as the system that perpetuates them.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Summary of Lean In"

    This is really a shorter version of Lean In, with extra creativity and more focus on leaning on friends to deal with these issues.

    "My feminist fire has been reignited!"

    I loved this book! It was educations, captivating, hilarious, and inspiring. Bahni Turpin is a fantastic narrator and Jessica Bennett knows how to make a girl feel understood and empowered.

    As a recent college graduate, working in my first office job, I found this book to be so helpful in educating myself on the kind of work environment I want to be a part of and how I can conduct myself to my full potential. I highly recommend this book to anyone, working or not, male or female.

    I'm definitely going to buy the hard copy to keep on hand :)

    "I didn't realize I was a feminist."

    I loved the power and playfulness of this book. i always knew I was a strong force to be reckoned with at work, but never realized how much a feminist I already was. I've already put many of these best practices in place and have noticed a difference in the way I'm treated. this book is awesome. I'm starting my own feminist fight club.

    Great book for all women, very thought provoking. I am glad it provided solutions to common issues at work like man-terrupters.
