"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"-- "A transformative book urging twenty-first-century women to embrace their anger and harness it as a tool for lasting personal and societal change. Women are angry, and it isn't hard to figure out why. We are underpaid and overworked. Too sensitive, or not sensitive enough. Too dowdy or too flashy. 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 would.) Contrary to the rhetoric of popular "self-help" and entire lifetimes of being told otherwise, our rage is one of the most important resources we have, our sharpest tool against both personal and political oppression. 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 our 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. 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? Rage Becomes Her makes the case that anger is not what gets in our way, it is our way, sparking a liberating new understanding of this core emotion. Following in the footsteps of manifestos like The Feminine Mystique and The Beauty Myth, Rage Becomes Her is an eye-opening, accessible credo ,offering us the tools to examine our anger and use it to create lasting positive change.

A little over halfway through this book, the author asks a question to the effect of: can you read a book about anger without becoming enraged? At least for me, the answer is no. Now, to be honest, I picked up this book in part because I was already annoyed, frustrated, and angry. What was great about this book was the validation it provided: it's amazing how powerful it is to have someone acknowledge your feelings and say the problems you struggle with are real and justified. This book also didn't shrink away from pointing out intersectional problems with women's anger, that some women are angry with each other, and that women can be angry about different things. I was worried when I started this book that it's relevance would be muted in the post-Trump era, but a certain New York governor proved that this book and topic are likely to be around and relevant for quite some time.

So much of this book did not surprise me. If you identify as a woman and have ever been sexually harassed (or worse) or read Roxane Gay, most of the data in this book will not shock you. Truthfully, this book should be read and digested by men, and sadly, they probably won't. I really liked the last chapter on how to channel anger, and I wish the book had taken a more pragmatic focus. As it was, I felt a clear preaching-to-the-choir strain that made me chafe a bit. It was not at all a cathartic read, but that has more to do with subject matter and approach than the author's ideas and quality of writing style (which was excellent). ( )

I read Eloquent Rage, Rage Becomes Her, and Good and Mad sequentially over about a week, and I highly recommend doing so. They're very complementary. Rage Becomes Her is a sociological book with an incredible amount of research on everything that is making women angry and why that's not a problem; Good and Mad is a narrative journalistic account of the many times in history and the present day that women's anger has changed society for the better; Eloquent Rage is a memoir and account of feminism and anger in the life of one black feminist. They nicely span the range between global to personal, make a sincere effort to be intersectional, and if these don't put a fire in your belly on women's issues it's very likely nothing ever will.

Here's a quote from the end of Rage Becomes Her that encapsulates her book's arguments and really could be put on a motivational poster or a t-shirt (or a meme, if it were a little shorter):

Anger is an assertion of rights and worth. It is communication, equality and knowledge. It is intimacy, acceptance, fearlessness, embodiment, revolt, and reconciliation. Anger is memory and rage. It is rational thought and irrational pain. Anger is freedom, independence, expansiveness, and entitlement. It is justice, passion, clarity, and motivation. Anger is instrumental, thoughtful, complicated, and resolved. In anger, whether you like it or not, there is truth.

Anger is the demand of accountability. It is evaluation, judgement, and refutation. It is reflective, visionary and anticipatory. It's a speech act, a social statement, an intention, and a purpose. It's a risk and a threat. A confirmation and a wish. It is both powerlessness and power, palliative and a provocation. In anger, you will find both ferocity and comfort, vulnerability and hurt. Anger is the expression of hope.

If you feel right now like you have a lot of rage, and don't know whether or not that's a good thing, and have no idea what to do with it all, these are three great books to read. I got to the end and felt about a million times better (though no less angry) and ready to make a lot of noise. ( )

Disclaimer: I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review.

9/26/18 - I'll write a more thorough review later, but my first thought is...wow. I won't lie, I started this book with trepidation. When I get angry, I cry. I actively avoid any and all confrontation. I've even been known to walk out of a room when an argument erupts, even if I'm not personally contributing to it. You get the picture.

I was blown away by Rage Becomes Her. The blood, sweat, and tears that Chemaly placed in this work is astounding. Her knowledge and passion are remarkable. Her words invoked in me the desire to reflect on every righteously angry moment I've ever had and to absolve myself of the guilt I didn't even realize I was feeling.

Thank you, Soraya Chemaly. Thank you for reminding me that my anger matters. Women (and men) of the world, please read this book and take it seriously. I promise you'll be a better person for it. ( )
