Blurb from Goodreads: 

This is a call to arms.

Are you aged zero to infinity? Finished with the sexist status quo? Ready to kick ass and take names?

Welcome to the Feminist Fight Club. You have lifetime membership.

Feminist Fight Club provides an arsenal of weapons for surviving in an unequal world. You will learn how to fight micro-aggressions, correct unconscious bias, deal with male colleagues who can't stop 'manterrupting' or 'bro-propriating' your ideas - and how to lean in without falling the f*ck over.

Every woman needs this book - and they needed it yesterday.

This is not a drill.


My Review:

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Penguin Books (UK) and NetGalley*

Feminist Fight Club is a book with tips on how to cope with sexism in the workplace.
It was interesting to read about the experiences that some women have had and it made me wonder if my workplace is sexist, especially seeing as I work in a predominantly male profession.
The tips were helpful, I just hope that I don't have to use them!
While this was informative, it did feel a bit repetitive towards the end.

Overall this was an interesting, enlightening read.
