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 every day - 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.

Agree and disagree
I get why the book is written the way it is, however, I think it starts off defensive when these haven't been my experiences in the corporate world. I'm glad it's asking women to stand up for themselves which is needed. There are certain parts that I disagree with about it but I hope it helps someone else.
