Episode 72: Jessica Bennett & Aminatou Sow on Fighting Sexism & the Patriarchy at Work


This week we recorded live from NeueHouse Madison Square with award-winning journalist and critic Jessica Bennett, and consultant and co-host of the podcast Call Your GirlfriendAminatou Sow. We gathered to talk about Jessica’s new book Feminist Fight Club, an incisive guide to navigating subtle sexism at work. What followed was a candid, and hilarious, conversation about what it is to be a modern woman.

Aminatou is also the founder of TechLadyMafia, a group that increases visibility and opportunities for women in Tech, and she recently let Politics and Social Impact Marketing at Google. Jessica worked as the contributing editor to Sheryl Sandberg’s women’s nonprofit, LeanIn.org, where she co-founded and curated the Lean In Collection with Getty Images, a photo initiative to change the depiction of women in stock photography. These women know a thing or two about the  realities facing working women, so let them engage and entertain you this episode. You’ll never react to a Manterrupter the same way again.

Let us know what you think @litupshow on Twitter and Instagram.


Buy Feminist Fight Club on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or better yet, at your local independent book store.

xoxo Angie
