Voted by her peers as one of the best lawyers in America, and described by Time magazine as "one of the nation's most effective advocates of family rights and feminist causes," Allred has devoted her career to fighting for civil rights and has won hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of abuse. She has taken on countless institutions to promote equality, including the Boy Scouts, the Friars Club, and the United States Senate. And as the attorney for numerous high-profile clients—including Nicole Brown Simpson's family, actress Hunter Tylo, and Amber Frey, Scott Peterson's girlfriend—Allred has helped victims assert and protect their rights.

Throughout her memoir, Allred offers colorful—sometimes shocking—examples of self-empowerment from her personal and professional life. Presenting nearly fifty of her most memorable cases, Allred takes us deep inside the justice system to show how it's possible to win even in the face of staggering odds. Her inspiring true stories serve to remind us that winning justice depends on the righ-teousness of the cause and an individual's willingness to stand up, speak out, and fight back. Fight Back and Win is a powerful testament to Gloria Allred's trailblazing career and the battles she has fought alongside countless brave individuals to win justice for us all.

To conquer, you must first conquer yourself : my life lessons -- Don't be victimized twice : Amber Frey's fight for justice -- You can fight the power : politicians and other good ol' boys -- You can catch a fallen star : taking on celebrity bad boys -- Fight back at work -- You can knock down the boys' club door -- Little things start big changes -- You can fight high-profile killers -- You can fight rapists and other sexual predators -- Beware of bigotry -- Motherhood is powerful -- Fight the boobs behind the tube -- Fight for the children -- Conclusion: What I have learned in the past thirty years can help you.
