Donegan inked an agreement with Scribner for a new book, which will be a primer on misogyny and sexual harassment, according to the publisher.

Moira Donegan, the creator of the viral Media Men List that documented alleged sexual harassers in media, has signed a book deal with Scribner, the publisher confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Donegan's book is described as a "primer on sexual harassment and assault as lived experience and moral and political challenge for feminists," according to a tweet by Donegan.

She created the Media Men List last year, which was shared privately among women in media and publishing before going viral, and later went public as its author in January in an essay for The Cut. Contributors to the list had named over 70 men they alleged to have perpetrated sexual assault or harassment before the list was taken down.

According to the Los Angeles Times, one of the men named on the list, author Stephen Elliott, filed a defamation lawsuit against Donegan and the list's anonymous contributors, seeking $1.5 million in damages earlier this month.

The planned book, Donegan's first, is currently untitled and does not have a release date yet.
