Event Description

The bestselling author of All the Single Ladies on the enduring power of female anger—and its ability to ignite a political movement. 

Rebecca Traister has been hailed as “the most brilliant voice on feminism in this country.” In her new book, Good and Mad, the best-selling author turns her expertise to the long, complicated story of female fury in this country—from the suffragettes to the scores of women who walked out of offices after Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court, and beyond. When properly harnessed, the force of women’s collective anger can change history. Yet female rage has long been caricatured and deligitimized, holding women to a ruinous double standard. 

Good and Mad demonstrates the cultural significance and political power of female anger and how this collective fury is again being applied to political transformation today. To discuss this and more, Rebecca Traister will be joined by digital strategist, writer, influencer, and co-host of the podcast Call Your Girlfriend, Aminatou Sow
