“Grab the broom of anger and drive off the beast of fear.” Zora Neale Hurston
"I hope that people walk away with the feeling of the Women's March, the #metoo movement, and a good old-fashioned bra burning, all rolled into one." Cristen Conger, Co-author & Founder of Unladylike
Okay, this one’s for my girls! Women and girls, in particular, are taught to repress anger, but anger can be healthy and justified--and it’s sometimes necessary before true peace can exist. Rather than stuffing our feelings this holiday season, all-of-us must stuff our stockings with books that honor and celebrate the catalyzing role that women’s anger has played throughout history!
1 Listen to this video featuring Good and Mad, The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger. And buy the book!
2 For those of us with daughters, read this story about how we can encourage our girls to express their anger.
3 Listen to Unladylike, a podcast that encourages us to “Stay Curious. Build Empathy. Raise Hell.” It’s also a book.4 Add Rage Becomes Her to your holiday reading list, or buy one for your sister, daughter, or BFF.
