A conversation-shifting book urging 21st-century women to
understand their anger, embrace its power, and use it as a tool for
positive change 'How many women cry when angry because we've held
it in for so long? How many discover that anger turned inward is
depression? Soraya Chemaly's Rage Becomes Her will be good for
women. After all, women have a lot to be angry about.' GLORIA
STEINEM Women are angry, and it isn't hard to figure out why. We
are underpaid, overworked, thwarted and diminished. The assertive
among us are labelled bitches, while the expressive among us are
considered shrill. We are told to stand down when we have an
opinion and to calm down when we are fired up. And when we somehow
manage to put one high heel-battered foot in front of the other
despite all of this, we're asked if it would kill us to smile. We
are mad as hell, and that's completely okay. Because contrary to
the endless barrage of self-help rhetoric about anger management
and letting go, the reality is that our rage is the most important
resource we have as women, a force for creation rather than
destruction, our sharpest tool against both personal and political
oppression. Anger is not what gets in our way, it is our way. All
we need to do is own it. This is a pitch perfect, engaging, and
accessible credo written by one of today's most influential
feminists. Analysing female anger as it relates to topics like
self-worth, objectification, pain, care, fear, silence, and denial,
Soraya illuminates how and why we repress our anger, revealing the
harm that this causes, and helping us recognise the liberating
power of owning our anger and marshalling it as a vital tool for
positive change. Just as Quiet brought about a new embrace of
introversion, Rage Becomes Her will bring about an embrace of
feminine anger that will leave women feeling liberated, inspired
and connected to an entire universe of women who are no longer
interested in making nice.
