How to Stand Up to Sexism
Words for when enough is enough
Toni Summers Hargis and BritMums
Ever been left speechless by sexism? From classroom to boardroom, social settings to harassment on the street, we’ve all been there.
No more lying awake at night, thinking of the perfect response. How To Stand Up To Sexism delivers comebacks to everything from microaggressions to outright insults and worse, giving you the perfect response at your fingertips every time! Born out of the authors’ personal and professional experience, this book delivers truly practical options, going beyond the usual vague suggestions to “talk to the person” or “take the matter up with HR” that beg the question “YES, BUT HOW?”
It prepares you to handle sexism effectively wherever you encounter it and will leave you feeling confident and in control. Finally, the answers are here.
Thank goodness for this book. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants attitudes to change.

This book has been a real eye-opener for me, not least because it so clearly explains all the forms of overt and covert sexism women face… I feel armed to be a better ally.
