Rage Becomes Her

THU, SEP 13, 2018 (53:55)

Women are angry, and it isn’t hard to figure out why.

Following in the footsteps of classic feminist manifestos like The Feminine Mystique and Our Bodies, Ourselves, Rage Becomes Her is an eye-opening book for the twenty-first-century woman: an engaging, accessible credo offering us the tools to re-understand our anger and harness its power to create lasting positive change.

Harvard Book Store welcomes award-winning writer and activist SORAYA CHEMALY for a discussion on her new book Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women's Anger. She is joined in conversation by JACLYN FRIEDMAN, author of Unscrewed: Women, Sex, Power, and How to Stop Letting the System Screw Us All.
