DISRUPT HER : A Manifesto For The Modern Woman

From the founder of THINX and TUSHY, start-ups collectively valued at more than $150 million, comes Disrupt-Her, a rallying cry for women to radically question the status quo.

Miki Agrawal has faced patriarchal pushback, fought girl-on-girl hate, ridden the roller coaster of building businesses as a female CEO, and even overcome an attempt to burn her for witchcraft (figuratively).

In order to navigate the complicated—at times maddening—struggles
of contemporary femininity, we need an unabashed manifesto for the modern woman that inspires us to move past outrage and take positive steps on the personal, professional, and societal levels.

This manifesto galvanizes us to action in 13 major areas of our lives with as much firepower as possible. These are the credos we live by, the advice we give to friends, the tenets we instill in our companies and peers on a daily basis. Stories of badass female movers and shakers are shared in this book too to give you an extra jolt of “I’ve got this.” It’s a whole body F*CK YES to your work, your love, your relationships, and your mission—while doing it all authentically, unapologetically, and with full integrity.
