From The Publisher*

A Wall Street Journal Bestseller! Named a best book of 2016 by: Chicago Tribune, Refinery 29, Forbes, Bust, CEO Reads.

It was a fight club-but without the fighting or the men. Every month, women would gather in a New York apartment to share sexist-job frustrations and trade strategies for how to tackle them. For years, these meetings were kept secret. But the time has come to talk about the club. 

In Feminist Fight Club, acclaimed journalist Jessica Bennett blends the personal story of her real-life fight club with a studied assessment of the gender gap that continues to plague the American workplace. With equal measures wit and rigor, Bennett provides the tactical strategies-and the camaraderie-every woman needs to fight back, as well as tools for the men who support the cause.

 

Review Quote*"Funny and fresh...one of those books that every person, not just every woman, should read."
Review Quote*"A worthy addition to the library of any young female professional or frustrated middle manager-or male coworker who wants to help."
Review Quote*"[A] cheeky guide for stamping out workplace sexism."
Review Quote*"Jessica's is a classic, f*ck-you feminist battle guide. The book offers unapologetic strategies for how to get down and strength up with female comrades to fight patriarchy on the daily. Every woman should have a Feminist Fight Club."
Review Quote*"This book offers the weapons that women need to win the war on inequality. With mighty wit, Bennett shows women how to defeat the enemies-and men how to stop being enemies. I was not prepared to laugh out loud so many times while learning so much about a serious topic."
Review Quote*"Jessica Bennett's Feminist Fight Club is engaging, hilarious and practical - full of simple tools for battling workplace sexism that every woman should have at her disposal. Jessica is a unique voice-and I will proudly proclaim myself a card-carrying member of the FFC."
Review Quote*"Bennett is on a mission to reform today's workplace, and this manifesto just might be the weapon modern women are looking for."
Review Quote*"It is saddening that the problems described in [Feminist Fight Club] persist, but Bennett's light approach and humorous neologisms make fighting the power a lot more palatable."
Review Quote*"[B]ound to be passed around from woman to woman - and beyond one gender - at office happy hours this fall and beyond."
