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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Engaging, hilarious, and practical—full of simple tools for battling workplace sexism that every woman should have.”

    Sheryl Sandberg, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Jessica’s is a classic, f*ck-you feminist battle guide. The book offers unapologetic strategies for how to get down and strength up with female comrades to fight patriarchy on the daily. Every woman should have a Feminist Fight Club.”

    Ilana Glazer, comedian and cocreator of Broad City

  • “The author reads the introductory sections while Bahni Turpin delivers the bulk of the discussion. Both women convey believable certitude and justifiable impatience with today’s still sexist work culture. Turpin, in particular, gives enormous credibility to the author’s keen observations regarding how men prop up their egos by preventing women from contributing or getting credit. Turpin’s vocal security works especially well when she delivers the sections on how women can be complicit in their oppression at work…This is a well-written, convincingly narrated discussion.”


  • “Funny and fresh; a sassy version of Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In, a cleverly crafted field guide, and one of those books that every person, not just every woman, should read.”


  • “The work bible every young woman starting her career needs.”

    Observer (London)

  • “Packed with relatable anecdotes, startling research, and realistic scripts for handling sticky situations, Feminist Fight Club is a no-bullshit, nuts-and-bolts guide to workplace empowerment.”

    Bust magazine
