Explaining anger as the founding lullaby of the nation that is still restricted to a chosen few
All kinds of ugly words are reserved for women who show anger. Where others see female anger as something to fear or reject, Soraya Chemaly sees strength, even opportunity.
Rage as a driving force behind organizing for social change and historical examples of how this plays out
When is anger constructive and important? Can it tie us together, rather than just pulling us apart? Rebecca Traister explains anger as an organizing tool.
Brittney Cooper explains how she went from rejecting the idea that she was angry to embracing it and harnessing it to make her work better
This week we speak to Soraya Chemaly, author of the new book “Rage Becomes Her” about Serena Williams, Title IX, and how our society monitors women’s anger, particularly black women.
Rebecca Traister explains how women’s anger has historically been a catalyst for social change and how people can better listen and respond to women’s anger.
