Battle Scars: Feminist Fight Club Author Jessica Bennett on Battling Office Sexism with Practical Hacks

| March 16, 2017

The First rule of Feminist Fight Club is you MUST talk about Feminist Fight Club. The 2nd rule of Feminist Fight CLub is you must talk about Feminist Fight Club. 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 it 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 Feminist Fight Club was born. Join us for an incredible chat with author Jessica Bennett as she shares the bruises, scrapes, and scars that mark their experience – and ultimately their victories – in battling office sexism.
