Summary
  • "A new, conversation-shifting book that encourages women to own their anger and use it as a tool for positive change, written by one of today's most influential feminist thinkers"--
  • "A transformative book urging twenty-first-century women to embrace their anger and harness it as a tool for lasting personal and societal change. Women are angry, and it isn't hard to figure out why. We are underpaid and overworked. Too sensitive, or not sensitive enough. Too dowdy or too flashy. Too big or too thin. Sluts or prudes. We are harassed, told we are asking for it, and asked if it would kill us to smile. (Yes, yes, it would.) Contrary to the rhetoric of popular "self-help" and entire lifetimes of being told otherwise, our rage is one of the most important resources we have, our sharpest tool against both personal and political oppression. We've been urged for so long to bottle up our anger, letting it corrode our bodies and minds in ways we don't even realize. Yet our anger is a vital instrument, a radar for injustice and a catalyst for change. On the flip side, the societal and cultural belittlement of our anger is a cunning way of limiting and controlling our power. We are so often encouraged to resist our rage or punished for justifiably expressing it, yet how many remarkable achievements would never have gotten off the ground without the kernel of anger that fueled them? Rage Becomes Her makes the case that anger is not what gets in our way, it is our way, sparking a liberating new understanding of this core emotion. Following in the footsteps of manifestos like The Feminine Mystique and The Beauty Myth, Rage Becomes Her is an eye-opening, accessible credo ,offering us the tools to examine our anger and use it to create lasting positive change. "--Dust jacket
  • Women are angry: we are underpaid and overworked; too sensitive, or not sensitive enough; too dowdy or too flashy. Chemaly believes that, contrary to entire lifetimes of being told otherwise, our rage is one of the most important resources we have, our sharpest tool against both personal and political oppression. Anger is a vital instrument, a radar for injustice and a catalyst for change. The societal and cultural belittlement of our anger is a way of limiting and controlling our power. -- adapted from jacket
