What People Are Saying about Career Defense 101:

The stories of real life women, the situations they experience, and how Meredith helped them will help you understand you are not alone if you experience harassment or assault in the workplace and - perhaps most importantly - that there are resources available to you. The book aides in demystifying how the law can be used in harassment/assault situations. Lawsuits, cease and desist - just the word the “law” in general - can feel overwhelming and daunting but Meredith breaks down the pros and cons of legal action in layman's terms. Even if you haven’t experienced harassment in the workplace, this is a valuable read for anyone in the workplace. It can guide your supporters and allies - and even your adversaries - in understanding your approach when defending your career from a blow like harassment or assault.

Hello! I am Meredith Holley, a lawyer who helps professional women end sexual harassment and heal, so that they can focus on doing work they love.


Experiencing sexual harassment for myself, early in my career, I was determined to do everything I could to learn how to end harassment for myself and my clients. After more than a year of harassment, I learned the skills that resulted in my harasser apologizing and changing his behavior. Now, I offer not only my skills as a lawyer, but everything I learned that allowed me to end sexual harassment for myself. I share what I learned in this book and would love to offer it to you so that you can impact your workplace.
