NOTE: This book is written by a lawyer, but it is not a substitute for legal advice and it does not include legal advice. Each state has different discrimination laws, and so it is important to talk with a lawyer in your state if you believe you may have a legal claim.
Hello! I am Meredith Holley, a lawyer who helps professional women clean up toxic work environments and stop sexual harassment, without quitting, so that they can focus on work they love.
Early in my legal career, I experienced sexual harassment from the owner of the company where I worked. I went to an employment lawyer and asked her for advice, but all she could offer, if I wanted to keep my job, was, "Things are really sexist, and we just have to deal with it." I was not satisfied with that answer, and so I researched and tried everything I could to make the harassment stop. After more than a year of harassment, I found tools that work. My harasser apologized, changed his behavior, and we worked together for years after.
Now I teach my clients how to do the same.
