Rage Becomes Her is an &;utterly eye opening&; (Bustle) book that gives voice to the causes, expressions, and possibilities of female rage.

As women, 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 there are so, so many legitimate reasons for us to feel angry, ranging from blatant, horrifying acts of misogyny to the subtle drip, drip drip of daily sexism that reinforces the absurdly damaging gender norms of our society.

In Rage Becomes Her, Soraya Chemaly argues that our anger is not only justified, it is also an active part of the solution. 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? Approached with conscious intention, 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&;one we can no longer abide.

&;A work of great spirit and verve&; (Time), Rage Becomes Her is a validating, energizing read that will change the way you interact with the world around you.

"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"--

The director of the Womens Media Center Speech Project urges women to embrace their anger and harness it as a tool for lasting personal and societal change.
