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 it 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 Feminist Fight Club was born.

Part manual, part manifesto, Feminist Fight Club blends the personal story of a group of women who formed a secret group in New York City with cutting edge social science research to provide practical, no-bullsh*t advice for how to combat today’s sexism. Bennett offers a new vocabulary for the sexist archetypes women encounter everyday—such as the Manterrupter, who talks over female colleagues in meetings, or the Bropropriator, who appropriates their ideas—and provides practical hacks for pushing back. With original illustrations, mad libs, a negotiation cheat sheet to stuff in your bra (or undergarment of choice) and fascinating historical research, the book has been called "a classic, fuck-you feminist battle guide" by Ilana Glazer and "engaging, hilarious and practical" by Sheryl Sandberg. It is 21 percent more expensive for men.
