Fight Patriarchy, Not Each Other
Feminist Fight Club
Part manual, part manifesto, Feminist Fight Club blends the personal stories of a group of women who formed a secret group in New York City with research, statistics, and no-bullsh*t advice for how to combat today’s sexism.
Jessica Bennett is an award-winning journalist and critic who writes on gender issues, sexuality and culture. She is a feature writer and columnist at the New York Times, where you can regularly find her byline in the Sunday style section on topics ranging from feminists joining Greek life to female pot entrepreneurs to the hyperbole of internet speak, which has left her literally dead, like so dead she is six feet under rolling in her grave. RIP. She authored the first profile of Monica Lewinsky in over a decade, looking critically at the woman who would later describe, in her TedTalk, being “patient zero” for online shaming.
Jessica’s work has also appeared in Newsweek, where she began her career as a staff writer, Time, where she was a columnist, and Cosmopolitan, where she helps edit a quarterly section on women and work. She is a contributing editor at LeanIn.Org, the nonprofit founded by Sheryl Sandberg, where she is the cofounder and curator of the Lean In Collection – a partnership with Getty Images to change the way women are depicted in stock photography. She was also, in what seems like a lifetime ago, the executive editor of Tumblr.
