Read Rage Becomes Her The Power of Women's Anger Free download Å PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ã Soraya Chemaly Soraya Chemaly ã 2 Review A transformative book urging twenty first century women to embrace their anger and harness it as a tool for lasting personal and societal changeWomen are angry and it isn’t hard to figure out whyWe are underpaid and overworked Too sensitive or not sensitive enough Too dowdy or too made up 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 wouldContrary to the rhetoric of popular “self help” and an entire lifetime of being told otherwise our rage is one of the most important resources we have our sharpest tool against. 35 starsReally loved the thesis of this book that women s anger is a powerful force for change in response to sexism and discrimination Soraya Chemaly is intersectional and all encompassing in Rage Becomes Her as she interweaves the experiences of women of color and lampoons the sexism that occurs in the workplace in online communities in families and She discusses several important topics that parallel the power of women s anger such as how women are expected to do so much emotional labor than men while also receiving punishment for expressing emotions like anger whereas men get praised for it One of the many uotes about the uses of anger that I appreciated What if we used frustration irritation humiliation anger and other negative feelings to be methodical and demanding First at home then at school then at work This would mean critically assessing the comforting habits we support out of nostalgia and tradition which would reuire no small measure of effort It means walking out of places of worship not buying certain movie tickets closing certain books and picking up others refusing to pay for certain products and finding compelling ways to disagree with friends and family at the dinner table It means explaining to grandparents engaging with school administrators and demanding rights at work The slow and productive burn of anger is an asset But leveraging it means taking a risk the risk of finding out how much what you care about matters to your communityOnly giving this a lower star rating because the format of the book dragged a bit for me Again I loved the actual content and Chemaly s take home message I just found that some of the sections blurred together and read like a long list of research findings and related facts without a cohesive structure Still I liked the book and I am glad to see its emergence alongside other recent books about women s anger like Elouent Rage by Brittany Cooper which I loved and Good and Mad by Rebecca Traister which I have and will read soon
