Portfolio signs Feminist Fight Club

Portfolio signs Feminist Fight Club

Portfolio has acquired a book by Lean In employee Jessica Bennett.

Editor Zoe Bohm acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to Feminist Fight Club in a pre-empt from Rachel Clements at Abner Stein on behalf of the Ross Yoon Agency for publication in May 2016.

North American rights were acquired by Julie Will at HarperWave after a 12-publisher auction.

Bennett writes for the New York Times, works for Lean In, and was executive editor at Tumblr.

Feminist Fight Club is described as a “funny, feisty playbook for young women starting out in their careers to navigate the workplace”.

The book will be a lead title for Penguin Random House’s Portfolio in 2016.
