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.

    "Not impressed."

    This didn't motivate,. The snarky tone really detracts from the message. Many good points that could have been presented in a way to empower you. This does not.

    "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 :)

    "Agree and disagree"

    I get why the book is written the way it is, however, I think it starts off defensive when these haven't been my experiences in the corporate world. I'm glad it's asking women to stand up for themselves which is needed. There are certain parts that I disagree with about it but I hope it helps someone else.

    "Get past the intro tho"

    Jessica Bennett wrote a funny, whipsmart, desperately needed book that I related to, bookmarked like crazy, and shared with coworkers and friends. But if, like I did, you find her voice grating in the sample, fear not -- she only reads the introduction. The amazing Bahni Turpin (who should win all the awards ever for her narration of "The Hate U Give," "Underground Railroad", and others) takes over from there.

    "Every person needs to read this book!"

    I laughed, I cried, and I laughed some more. Jessica Bennett does such a great job explaining the environments of working women today and how to tackle the things that get in our way!

    "Feminist Fight Club is Awesome!"

    This book is full of powerful insights that highlight ways to assert the true concepts of feminism in a male dominated work place! The author is super feisty, which makes the book that much more entertaining.

    "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.

    "Awful in so many ways"

    I've struggled more with writing a review for this book than any other I've ever read. I did not like this book on so many levels. As an upper-management professional, I was completely offended by the portrayal of the workplace as hostile to women, and can't help but wonder how much of the hostility is self-perpetuated even within the stories in the FFC. Millennials, your mothers worked hard to break into business, get maternity leaves and other friendly practices, and climb higher than women have before. My colleagues are women, my superiors are women, and we have always spoken our minds, shared our ideas, and been recognized for our expertise. Bennett's picture makes it sound like we are back in 1965. If that is your office place, don't whine, get out!

    Besides just hating the pessimistic tone of the entire thesis I was annoyed by the genderfication of language throughout the book which other reviewers have documented and do not think the liberal peppering of profanity helps make the authors arguments. Profanity isn't necessary, it isn't scholarly or academic, it isn't pleasant, and it certainly doesn't prove anything positive. Don't do it!

    Lastly, this is probably the most annoying reader I've ever listened to. I will not listen to her again.
