From the Publisher

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 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, 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 Feminist Mad Libs, a Negotiation Cheat Sheet, and fascinating historical research, 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.

    SIX YEARS AFTER a Harvard Law–educated black lawyer and her Harvard Law mixed-race husband and their two polished young daughters took up residence in the White House, a Howard-educated black advertising executive, his mixed-race Brown-alum anesthesiologist wife, and their four polished children took up residence in prime time. But the brilliance of Black-ish was that, as much as its timeliness made it a cultural landmark, it was also pretty timeless. Black America has always needed Black-ish, just as white America has always needed Seinfeld or Sex and the City; like its 1980s predecessor, The

    FEMINIST FIGHT CLUB AN OFFICE SURVIVAL MANUAL (FOR A SEXIST WORKPLACE) By Jessica Bennett Do you have a mansplainer in your office?

Yes, journalist Jessica Bennett’s new book is packed with corny—if catchy—names for the sexism many women encounter at work, but her advice for dealing with this bad behavior is serious.
