A Wall Street Journal bestseller
It was a fight club—but without the fighting and without the men. Every month, the women would gather to share sexist job frustrations and strategies for how to tackle them. For years the meetings were kept a secret—but the time has come to talk about the club.
In Feminist Fight Club: A Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace (HarperCollins) journalist and New York Times gender editor Jessica Bennett blends the personal story of her real-life office "fight club" with a studied assessment of the gender gap that continues to plague the American workplace and beyond. With equal measures wit and rigor, Bennett provides the tactical strategies—and camaraderie—that every woman needs to fight back, as well as tools for the men who support the cause.
