Many women have experienced sexism in the workplace, be it from a “man-terrupter” speaking over them in meetings or a “him-itator” appropriating their ideas. Award-winning journalist Jessica Bennett offers a guide to women seeking to navigate and overcome this pervasive problem. With a blend of personal examples, field research, and playful exercises, Bennett addresses the overt sexism that women face in the workplace as well as their own self-sabotaging behaviors. By examining the system that perpetuates this culture, she hopes to help women create space to work together and fight back.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
