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.
