If this were an equal world, this book wouldn't have to exist. But the reality is, it's not; and we shouldn't wait around for somebody else to save us. We need to fight for ourselves. Welcome to the Feminist Fight Club. Here is 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' (yes, women get interrupted in meetings more than men) or 'bro-propriating' your ideas - and lean in without falling the f--k over. Every woman needs this book, and they needed it yesterday.
