The Furies: Women's Rage, Women's Power
Two of America's most important feminist voices have written books grappling with the power of women's anger. Brittney Cooper's Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower and Rebecca Traister's Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger take women's fury seriously as a political response and force for change. They place women's rage in historical context, and show how such anger has been trivialized or weaponized to undermine women. Join us for a lively conversation as Cooper and Traister discuss women's anger with New York magazine senior correspondent and CNN contributor Irin Carmon.
