Sexual harassment, attacks on reproductive rights, pay disparities, double standards and male dominance in both corporate boardrooms and political backrooms are feeding a wave of female fury in America. And in her latest bestseller, Good and Mad, Traister urges women to reject the stereotype that anger isn’t ladylike and embrace a full measure of that ire. “In the fury of women,” she writes, “lies the power to change the world.”
Traister, a columnist for New York magazine and a contributing editor at Elle, will discuss how women’s collective anger has repeatedly shifted the course of American history – and how much more it can accomplish.
