Description

Part manual, part manifesto, a humorous yet incisive guide to navigating subtle sexism at work--a pocketbook 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, if Ellen Pao is any indication, 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, infographics, and no-bullsh*t expert advice. Bennett offers a new vocabulary for the sexist workplace archetypes women encounter everyday--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 original illustrations, Feminist Mad Libs, a Negotiation Cheat Sheet, as well as fascinating historical research and a kit for "How to Start Your Own Club," Feminist Fight Club tackles both the external (sexist) and internal (self-sabotaging) behaviors that plague today's women--as well as the system that perpetuates them.
