Description

“How many women cry when angry because we've held it in for so long? How many discover that anger turned inward is depression? Soraya Chemaly’s Rage Becomes Her will be good for women, and for the future of this country. After all, women have a lot to be angry about.” (Gloria Steinem)

A transformative audiobook urging 21st-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 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 would. 

Contrary 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 both personal and political oppression. We’ve been told 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, our 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 told to resist our rage or punished for justifiably expressing it, yet how many remarkable achievements in this world 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 new understanding of one of our core emotions that will give women a liberating sense of why their anger matters and connect them to an entire universe of women no longer interested in making nice at all costs. 

Following in the footsteps of classic feminist manifestos like The Feminine Mystique and Our Bodies, Ourselves, Rage Becomes Her is an eye-opening audiobook for the 21st-century woman: an engaging, accessible credo offering us the tools to re-understand our anger and harness its power to create lasting positive change.

WOW! Incredible to get the gender gap conversation started

Angela I was aware of the gender gap issues, but this book brings an all round view of the massive gender gap issues that continue he needed to be discussed in schools, politics and homes. A definite must read!

FANTASTIC! AMAZING! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Every person in the world should listen to this book! I’ve never felt more validated in my life! This isn’t just a book about anger, it is a book about the challenges women face and our right to feel like we deserve more! I would give it 100 stars if I could!

Be Empowered in Your Anger!

This was such a lovely book. The information it unpacked about anger politics in personal, professional, and political spaces was eye-opening. Chemaly addresses big issues in an approachable way making this book accessible in so many ways. Her reading of her work is also wonderful, the performance is clear and exciting. I cannot say enough good words about this book. It is a must-read.

A book everyone should read/listen to

Women, so they can put words on their feelings of frustration and learn to articulate them (and quote the book if necessary!). And men, so they can better understand women. I cannot recommend this book enough! And it is wonderfully narrated by the author.

Holy Raging Hell

This book rocked my world. I’ve been in what I have affectionately called a “funk” for a few months. The news, things happening in life and business, and a lifetime of only recently felt and examined fury have taken their toll. I thought I was depressed, but what it is, I realized with the help of this book, is a low-grade seething rage that I keep suppressing to get through the day. This book reminded me how to harness that anger and put it to use. It’s here to help me, and it’s here to help you, and it’s here to help all of us do something to change the way things are for women and other marginalized people. Listen to this book. I’ve already told all of my friends to get it too.

Sad!

Reviewers called this book "important", "timely", "liberating". And it certainly is important and eye-opening. And I felt so sad listening to all the arguments and findings of recent research that are EXACTLY THE SAME! as the arguments and research I read about in the 60's and 70's, when "Women's Lib" and I came of age at the same time. What have we accomplished in 50 years?! a few more cents per hour, a handful of female CEOs....and anti-female sentiments everywhere, constant, relentless, and infuriating. Still infuriating, I should say. It's true that anger is powerful. When will enough women be angry enough to change this "man's world"?

A New Classic of Feminist Writing.

This book is excellent, and it could not have been released at a better time, given the rage engendered by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. I can imagine that the author will update the book to include her thoughts about this situation when the paperback version is released. She points out how the inability of women to express anger without being criticized and even demonized is one of the most significant roots of misogyny. I am extremely impressed by the level of scholarship of the author, with numerous facts to back up her assertions. There are examples from history and the current day. The writing is anything but dry, however. The author writes with passion and a wry sense of humor. I am glad that she read the book herself; I found her voice very strong and appealing. I believe that this book will enter the ranks of classics of feminist writing. I have listened to it once, and plan to listen to it again. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

If you are a man a want to understand...

What your wife, mother, daughter, or sister experience this is a eye opening book. We think “we get it” but it is much more subversive and complicated than most men realize. This is a masterful work that is a powerhouse of hard statistics. Truly Life changing, I highly recommend.

eye opening, mind altering

This book alternates between deacribing the unhealthy and unfair supression of anger in women and the disproportionate volume of things women have to be about. there is a chapter at the end about healthy ways to express anger.

Nearly made me cry with rage

I nearly cried with rage while listening to this book. It really turned my attention to actions and reactions I see or experience everyday but most of the time dismiss as normal. I want to recomend it to every women or just everybody I know.

monotone voice

The narrator voice is robotic, made it hard to focus. I couldn't complete the book, it bothered me.

Transformative

A perfect combination of personal stories and social sciences research that validates feelings I’ve held for ages but couldn’t articulate them so clearly. I am so glad the author chose to read it herself on audible as I think only she could communicate the subtle humor and sarcasm that made this book so enjoyable. I intend to buy a hard copy to highlight my favorite parts to reference when I inevitably feel angry at current events or personal experiences. This is a must read.

A Must Read - for Women and Men

Beyond important. Powerful. Needed. Loved the recommended actions for women to take. Loved it all. A must read for women. And a must read for men.
