A Wall Street Journal Bestseller! Named a best book of 2016 by: Chicago Tribune, Refinery 29, Forbes, Bust, CEO Reads.

It was a fight club—but without the fighting or the men. Every month, women would gather in a New York apartment to share sexist-job frustrations and trade strategies for how to tackle them. For years, these meetings were kept secret. But the time has come to talk about the club. 

In Feminist Fight Club, acclaimed journalist Jessica Bennett blends the personal story of her real-life fight club with a studied assessment of the gender gap that continues to plague the American workplace. With equal measures wit and rigor, Bennett provides the tactical strategies—and the camaraderie—every woman needs to fight back, as well as tools for the men who support the cause.

 

Award-winning journalist Jessica Bennett is a contributing writer for the New York Times and a columnist for Time.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Advice! I absolutely loved this book. I carried it around with me everywhere so much that the back cover got ripped off and it got wet many times. It was such a great read and had so much great advice to help with workplace sexism. I will re-read this book many times. A must have for all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Reading this book was like sitting down with a bunch of girlfriends and have those "me too!" moments. Sexism is real in the workplace, and an easy-to-read book like this was such a wonderful place to begin figuring out how to deal with it constructively. Full of facts and resources; highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A worthy read I had to read this for my book club this month. While it's not something I would have chosen for myself, it was a decent read. To be fair, I don't think it contained any new, revealing information. The data and situations the author speaks of, I'm sure are familiar to most women. Even the suggestions as to what to do and how to approach different situations is not "newsflash" information. However the issue is that most of us as women know what we should/must do but just don't do it. Jessica Bennett tries to provide us with the push that we need to make our voices heard. Although this shouldn't be necessary in this day and age, this is a fight that is far from over.

Editorial Reviews

“Bennett has written a guidebook that will likely benefit those women who want to climb the rungs of power and challenge the Boys at the Top... her suggestion that women form their own Feminist Fight Clubs sounds like a mighty fine idea. I, for one, am ready to engage.”
