Publisher's Summary

A trial lawyer’s guide to seven proven strategies that help end sexual harassment at work without retaliation so that you can focus on your job.

Women are often told that the best way to handle workplace harassment is to ignore it. But trial lawyer Meredith Holley knows better. In Career Defense 101, Holley lays out eye-opening research and tools that are proven to end harassment and help women advance in their careers.

As a trial lawyer and coach, Holley uses what she has learned from her own experiences of overcoming harassment, stalking, and discrimination, as well as her legal experience to help her clients. Even women who do not want to bring a legal claim for their harassment are able to use these strategies to overcome sexual harassment and leave it behind for good.

Practical Advice for dealing with sexual harassmen

Instead of telling women to just try harder like "Lean In", which is useless advice, this book shows women how to effectively use psychological tricks to create healthy boundaries with a harasser. It also explains how women can look out for their own interests in a legal environment that is hostile towards them.

The narration was good and I found myself chuckling at the metaphors that the author provides which helps take the edge off a serious topic. It was a great road trip listen.

Such An Important Topic and Concepts

I wish more people had access to this book and the tools/strategies inside when they really needed them. These are things we are not taught and don't inherently know how to do. Women, in particular, minimize and put up with behavior that can be so detrimental to their health, well-being, and careers. Often with the belief that this is the trade-off for being good, loyal, and getting what we want. But, Meredith is here to tell us, there IS another way. What if we could be happy, healthy, in a thriving career AND not have to receive/internalize any behavior that violates our personal boundaries? It's possible. Read the book for relatable stories and all the how-to's!
*If your situation is dire, or you have the suspicion that you might need help, please read the book and reach out to someone who can help. You don't have to wait until it "gets bad enough" or worse. Do it now. <3
