Praise for "If You Lean In, Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse?":
"Gina Barreca's essays are like dispatches from a dear friend: Wonderful, witty, heartfelt and wise - with many memorable zingers and tear inducing stingers. Her gift is one of connection and her work is relatable and true. Share this book with your sisters and your BFF (Brainy Friends and Feminists) book group." - Amy Dickinson, author of the nationally syndicated column "Ask Amy"
"If you ever find that your best gal pal isn't available, you need look no further than Barreca's book. It contains everything a good friend would provide: honesty, insight, female camaraderie, and a lot of laughs." - Rachel Dratch
"Barrecaville turns out to be a very funny place. In it, bad boyfriends are good: They remind us that, just as there are significant others, so, too, are there insignificant others. With that tiny twist of language, she seizes something that was right in front of us the whole time but we couldn’t grasp….Despite all the rowdiness, Barreca’s erudition pokes through every page. She romps across the literary landscape…” - Psychology Today
"Barreca's mix of personal essays, lists, and advice column-style interludes is laugh-out-loud funny (literally...).” - Elle's Lettres Readers’ Prize, June 2016
“[Barreca] created a beautiful, entertaining and touching essay that opens up women’s leadership issues and workforce equities and inequities in a way Sandberg’s book cannot, because the billionaire CEO writes from a different place of greater privilege and power. We hardworking women should all have this book (and Barreca’s others as well!) on our shelf, as a drop-in, cheer up, think a bit, and get back to work…” - Leadership Spirit, Carol Burbank, Ph.D.
