Rage Becomes Her

Soraya Chemaly

Overview

Women are taught to suppress their rage; female anger often being depicted as unacceptable. While male anger is seen as strength, women often need to repress it to fit in and carry shame into their adult lives. But anger finds a way to express itself, and its varied manifestations can deeply harm women's sense of self.

In Rage Becomes Her, award-winning author and activist Soraya Chemaly argues that female anger has not only many causes and expressions, but hopeful possibilities. Acclaimed as book of the year by The Washington Post, NPR, and Psychology Today, Chemaly argues that, historically, femininity has been premised on the repression of anger, an inference that continues to this day.

Across a range of subjects, from gender norms and biases to racialized and sexual violence, religion, and the division of labor in heterosexual relationships, Rage Becomes Her offers a searing critique of societal assumptions and demands of women.

"A society that does not respect women's anger is one that does not respect women; not as human beings, thinkers, knowers, active participants, or citizens."
