More about Feminist Fight Club:

Part manual, part manifesto, Feminist Fight Club blends the personal stories of a group of women who formed a secret group in New York City with research, statistics, and 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, Feminist Mad Libs, a Negotiation Cheat Sheet, and fascinating historical research – including a glossary of OG Feminist Fight Clubs – 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.
