    In Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women's Anger, author Soraya Chemaly explores and confronts the gendering of emotions, in this case the gender ideas of anger. Social norms teach us that anger expressed by females is undesirable, uncomfortable, and certainly not feminine, unlike with ...

    One of the most powerful books I've read this year, Rage Becomes Her gives voice to the causes, expressions, and possibilities of female rage. I will do a full video review on my YouTube channel Beautifully Bookish Bethany, but I cannot recommend this book enough. It says the things th...

    Can you read about a book about rage without becoming angry? I certainly could not. Chemaly brings up many relatable experiences and topics: the role of women as selfless caretakers, fear of being publically harassed and shamed, women in politics, benevolent sexism, the #MeToo movement...

    I am glad I read this book, but I didn't love it. It's not really a contemplation of anger that provides new insight or analysis. It's sort of a hodgepodge of feminist critique--all of the micro and macro ways in which women are harassed, discriminated against, and devalued. If you're ...

    ---- Disclosure: I received this book for free from Goodreads. ---- After thinking on it & reading the other reviews I honestly don't think I have anything else to add. It's a great book long overdue in existing. I try to stay well-versed in most of the kinds of information that w...

    I have been following Soraya's writing for many years, so I expected this book to be amazing?but it surpassed my wildest expectations. Rage Becomes Her will make you cry?and make you angry?but it will also leave you hopeful and filled with the energy necessary to create change. A...

    This book doesn't know what it wants to be. In the ARC, it's marketed, titled, and introed as an exploration into women's anger -- how the emotion manifests differently in women than in men, how women handle (suppress?) it, the effect it has on women's bodies. And in the beginning, it ...

    Rage Becomes Her is at once the worst and best book to have started in the midst of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation. I was already enraged and this book has so much more to make me angry, but it also puts it into context. Of course, the best thing Soraya Chemaly does with Rage Becomes...

    Compared to That's What She Said: What Men Need to Know (and Women Need to Tell Them) about Working Together that I read earlier this year, Rage Becomes Her was a harder read for me to swallow. Both books highlight how sexist treatment still prevails in the USA and overlaps with othe...

    This is a Goodreads win review. This is not my favorite topic. I in general do not like rage and anger. However if a woman can grow and express these feelings correctly and move forward in a good way than I can see the point. But I have seen some people who stay angry forever about one...

    Anger is a Gift (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through NetGalley. Trigger warning for discussions of sexism and misogyny, including sexual assault.) Ask yourself, why would a society deny girls and women, from cradle to grave, the right to feel, express, and...

    ?There is not a woman alive who does not understand that women?s anger is openly reviled.? Honestly, Chemaly doesn?t state anything woman today aren?t at least vaguely familiar with. How many of us were told it is not good to express anger because it?s unbecoming of a ...

    I won this book for free from Goodreads Giveaways. Thank you to Goodreads, Atria Books, and Soraya Chemaly. As always, an honest review from me. Rage Becomes Her might be my book of the year. It's incredibly powerful, poignant and validating for women. I want to share the book with...

    Your anger is a gift you give to yourself and the world that is yours. In anger, I have lived more fully, freely, intensely, sensitively, and politically. If ever there was a time not to silence yourself, to channel your anger into healthy places and choices, this is it. This was a ...

    Often times we argue this topic with emotion and "rage" but Soraya provides not only insight about how to channel rage into power, but research that solidifies our feelings. Rage Becomes Her asks "What do we lose, personally and as a society, by not listening to women?s anger or resp...

    I am enraged. There's nothing like growing more and more angry while reading a book on anger. And there is plenty of anger to around. Soraya Chemaly, in "Rage Becomes Her," convinced me to plunk down cold, hard cash after reading the first few pages. The first chapter sets the re...

    I wish the book had focused more on how to harness women's rage as opposed to all the reasons women have to be consumed by rage. It's a good primer on sexism, if you haven't had much exposure to all the ways women are discriminated against. In the end I was looking for more useful appl...

    Simply: she's telling me things I already know. I don't need help discovering or validating my rage. I'm stopping after the second chapter and I don't know if I'll come back to it. I realize there are women who need this kind of information, but that's just not me: I'm pretty clear...

    Thorough, intersectional, illuminating, and fascinating are just a few of the words I'd use to describe this book. I learned so much and feel inspired to stay angry and take action. Anger doesn't have to be the negative emotion we're taught it is. Anger is the emotion that recognizes i...

    A well-researched book that focuses not only on how justifiably angry women are, but one that spends the majority of its time deeply discussing the variety of topics that women are angry about. I frequently felt that there were too many examples of each topic, that I understood the poi...

    I wanted to like this book. I need a book that delivers on the subtitle, "the power of women's anger." This book was an exhaustive and depressing litany of all the excellent reasons women have to be pissed off. Enraging to read! And I suppose it's useful to have such validation if you'...

    This book was incredibly enlightening and empowering. I have been struggling with rage and trying to get rid of it unsuccessfully or to hold it in which only made it come out in destructive ways. This book was liberating in that it was not about 'managing' or 'diffusing' anger but abou...

    "What I wish I had taught my daughter in that moment was that she had every right to be angry." This book was so good I was hard pressed to put it down. Right from the start the discussion centered upon varying degrees of injustices against women, how anger should be maintained and o...

    This seemed like an extraordinarily fitting read given events of the past few weeks so this seemed like a timely read. It helped that I managed to snag a copy from the library sooner rather than later so it seemed like the right read for the right moment. The subtitle of "The Power of ...

    Simply: she's telling me things I already know. I don't need help discovering or validating my rage. I'm stopping after the second chapter and I don't know if I'll come back to it. I realize there are women who need this kind of information, but that's just not me: I'm pretty clear...

    Thorough, intersectional, illuminating, and fascinating are just a few of the words I'd use to describe this book. I learned so much and feel inspired to stay angry and take action. Anger doesn't have to be the negative emotion we're taught it is. Anger is the emotion that recognizes i...

    A well-researched book that focuses not only on how justifiably angry women are, but one that spends the majority of its time deeply discussing the variety of topics that women are angry about. I frequently felt that there were too many examples of each topic, that I understood the poi...

    In Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women's Anger, author Soraya Chemaly explores and confronts the gendering of emotions, in this case the gender ideas of anger. Social norms teach us that anger expressed by females is undesirable, uncomfortable, and certainly not feminine, unlike with ...

    One of the most powerful books I've read this year, Rage Becomes Her gives voice to the causes, expressions, and possibilities of female rage. I will do a full video review on my YouTube channel Beautifully Bookish Bethany, but I cannot recommend this book enough. It says the things th...

    Can you read about a book about rage without becoming angry? I certainly could not. Chemaly brings up many relatable experiences and topics: the role of women as selfless caretakers, fear of being publically harassed and shamed, women in politics, benevolent sexism, the #MeToo movement...

    I am glad I read this book, but I didn't love it. It's not really a contemplation of anger that provides new insight or analysis. It's sort of a hodgepodge of feminist critique--all of the micro and macro ways in which women are harassed, discriminated against, and devalued. If you're ...

    This book doesn't know what it wants to be. In the ARC, it's marketed, titled, and introed as an exploration into women's anger -- how the emotion manifests differently in women than in men, how women handle (suppress?) it, the effect it has on women's bodies. And in the beginning, it ...

    Rage Becomes Her is at once the worst and best book to have started in the midst of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation. I was already enraged and this book has so much more to make me angry, but it also puts it into context. Of course, the best thing Soraya Chemaly does with Rage Becomes...

    This is a Goodreads win review. This is not my favorite topic. I in general do not like rage and anger. However if a woman can grow and express these feelings correctly and move forward in a good way than I can see the point. But I have seen some people who stay angry forever about one...

    Your anger is a gift you give to yourself and the world that is yours. In anger, I have lived more fully, freely, intensely, sensitively, and politically. If ever there was a time not to silence yourself, to channel your anger into healthy places and choices, this is it. This was a ...

    Often times we argue this topic with emotion and "rage" but Soraya provides not only insight about how to channel rage into power, but research that solidifies our feelings. Rage Becomes Her asks "What do we lose, personally and as a society, by not listening to women?s anger or resp...

    I am enraged. There's nothing like growing more and more angry while reading a book on anger. And there is plenty of anger to around. Soraya Chemaly, in "Rage Becomes Her," convinced me to plunk down cold, hard cash after reading the first few pages. The first chapter sets the re...

    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 acti...

    I wish the book had focused more on how to harness women's rage as opposed to all the reasons women have to be consumed by rage. It's a good primer on sexism, if you haven't had much exposure to all the ways women are discriminated against. In the end I was looking for more useful appl...

    I wanted to like this book. I need a book that delivers on the subtitle, "the power of women's anger." This book was an exhaustive and depressing litany of all the excellent reasons women have to be pissed off. Enraging to read! And I suppose it's useful to have such validation if you'...

    This seemed like an extraordinarily fitting read given events of the past few weeks so this seemed like a timely read. It helped that I managed to snag a copy from the library sooner rather than later so it seemed like the right read for the right moment. The subtitle of "The Power of ...

    I am human, and, at times, I get angry. I've been told so many times, in so many ways, in so many contexts, by both men and women that I "shouldn't" be angry. And every time my anger was policed, it rankled because I find that my anger makes me more productive and gives me agency, whil...

    Thorough, intersectional, illuminating, and fascinating are just a few of the words I'd use to describe this book. I learned so much and feel inspired to stay angry and take action. Anger doesn't have to be the negative emotion we're taught it is. Anger is the emotion that recognizes i...

    A well-researched book that focuses not only on how justifiably angry women are, but one that spends the majority of its time deeply discussing the variety of topics that women are angry about. I frequently felt that there were too many examples of each topic, that I understood the poi...

    I wanted to like this book. I need a book that delivers on the subtitle, "the power of women's anger." This book was an exhaustive and depressing litany of all the excellent reasons women have to be pissed off. Enraging to read! And I suppose it's useful to have such validation if you'...

    In Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women's Anger, author Soraya Chemaly explores and confronts the gendering of emotions, in this case the gender ideas of anger. Social norms teach us that anger expressed by females is undesirable, uncomfortable, and certainly not feminine, unlike with ...

    One of the most powerful books I've read this year, Rage Becomes Her gives voice to the causes, expressions, and possibilities of female rage. I will do a full video review on my YouTube channel Beautifully Bookish Bethany, but I cannot recommend this book enough. It says the things th...

    Can you read about a book about rage without becoming angry? I certainly could not. Chemaly brings up many relatable experiences and topics: the role of women as selfless caretakers, fear of being publically harassed and shamed, women in politics, benevolent sexism, the #MeToo movement...

    I am glad I read this book, but I didn't love it. It's not really a contemplation of anger that provides new insight or analysis. It's sort of a hodgepodge of feminist critique--all of the micro and macro ways in which women are harassed, discriminated against, and devalued. If you're ...

    ---- Disclosure: I received this book for free from Goodreads. ---- After thinking on it & reading the other reviews I honestly don't think I have anything else to add. It's a great book long overdue in existing. I try to stay well-versed in most of the kinds of information that w...

    I have been following Soraya's writing for many years, so I expected this book to be amazing?but it surpassed my wildest expectations. Rage Becomes Her will make you cry?and make you angry?but it will also leave you hopeful and filled with the energy necessary to create change. A...

    This book doesn't know what it wants to be. In the ARC, it's marketed, titled, and introed as an exploration into women's anger -- how the emotion manifests differently in women than in men, how women handle (suppress?) it, the effect it has on women's bodies. And in the beginning, it ...

    Rage Becomes Her is at once the worst and best book to have started in the midst of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation. I was already enraged and this book has so much more to make me angry, but it also puts it into context. Of course, the best thing Soraya Chemaly does with Rage Becomes...

    This is a Goodreads win review. This is not my favorite topic. I in general do not like rage and anger. However if a woman can grow and express these feelings correctly and move forward in a good way than I can see the point. But I have seen some people who stay angry forever about one...

    I won this book for free from Goodreads Giveaways. Thank you to Goodreads, Atria Books, and Soraya Chemaly. As always, an honest review from me. Rage Becomes Her might be my book of the year. It's incredibly powerful, poignant and validating for women. I want to share the book with...

    Your anger is a gift you give to yourself and the world that is yours. In anger, I have lived more fully, freely, intensely, sensitively, and politically. If ever there was a time not to silence yourself, to channel your anger into healthy places and choices, this is it. This was a ...

    Often times we argue this topic with emotion and "rage" but Soraya provides not only insight about how to channel rage into power, but research that solidifies our feelings. Rage Becomes Her asks "What do we lose, personally and as a society, by not listening to women?s anger or resp...

    I am enraged. There's nothing like growing more and more angry while reading a book on anger. And there is plenty of anger to around. Soraya Chemaly, in "Rage Becomes Her," convinced me to plunk down cold, hard cash after reading the first few pages. The first chapter sets the re...

    I wish the book had focused more on how to harness women's rage as opposed to all the reasons women have to be consumed by rage. It's a good primer on sexism, if you haven't had much exposure to all the ways women are discriminated against. In the end I was looking for more useful appl...

    In Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women's Anger, author Soraya Chemaly explores and confronts the gendering of emotions, in this case the gender ideas of anger. Social norms teach us that anger expressed by females is undesirable, uncomfortable, and certainly not feminine, unlike with ...

    One of the most powerful books I've read this year, Rage Becomes Her gives voice to the causes, expressions, and possibilities of female rage. I will do a full video review on my YouTube channel Beautifully Bookish Bethany, but I cannot recommend this book enough. It says the things th...

    Can you read about a book about rage without becoming angry? I certainly could not. Chemaly brings up many relatable experiences and topics: the role of women as selfless caretakers, fear of being publically harassed and shamed, women in politics, benevolent sexism, the #MeToo movement...

    I am glad I read this book, but I didn't love it. It's not really a contemplation of anger that provides new insight or analysis. It's sort of a hodgepodge of feminist critique--all of the micro and macro ways in which women are harassed, discriminated against, and devalued. If you're ...

    ---- Disclosure: I received this book for free from Goodreads. ---- After thinking on it & reading the other reviews I honestly don't think I have anything else to add. It's a great book long overdue in existing. I try to stay well-versed in most of the kinds of information that w...

    I have been following Soraya's writing for many years, so I expected this book to be amazing?but it surpassed my wildest expectations. Rage Becomes Her will make you cry?and make you angry?but it will also leave you hopeful and filled with the energy necessary to create change. A...

    This book doesn't know what it wants to be. In the ARC, it's marketed, titled, and introed as an exploration into women's anger -- how the emotion manifests differently in women than in men, how women handle (suppress?) it, the effect it has on women's bodies. And in the beginning, it ...

    Rage Becomes Her is at once the worst and best book to have started in the midst of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation. I was already enraged and this book has so much more to make me angry, but it also puts it into context. Of course, the best thing Soraya Chemaly does with Rage Becomes...

    Compared to That's What She Said: What Men Need to Know (and Women Need to Tell Them) about Working Together that I read earlier this year, Rage Becomes Her was a harder read for me to swallow. Both books highlight how sexist treatment still prevails in the USA and overlaps with othe...

    This is a Goodreads win review. This is not my favorite topic. I in general do not like rage and anger. However if a woman can grow and express these feelings correctly and move forward in a good way than I can see the point. But I have seen some people who stay angry forever about one...

    Anger is a Gift (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through NetGalley. Trigger warning for discussions of sexism and misogyny, including sexual assault.) Ask yourself, why would a society deny girls and women, from cradle to grave, the right to feel, express, and...

    ?There is not a woman alive who does not understand that women?s anger is openly reviled.? Honestly, Chemaly doesn?t state anything woman today aren?t at least vaguely familiar with. How many of us were told it is not good to express anger because it?s unbecoming of a ...

    I won this book for free from Goodreads Giveaways. Thank you to Goodreads, Atria Books, and Soraya Chemaly. As always, an honest review from me. Rage Becomes Her might be my book of the year. It's incredibly powerful, poignant and validating for women. I want to share the book with...

    Your anger is a gift you give to yourself and the world that is yours. In anger, I have lived more fully, freely, intensely, sensitively, and politically. If ever there was a time not to silence yourself, to channel your anger into healthy places and choices, this is it. This was a ...

    Often times we argue this topic with emotion and "rage" but Soraya provides not only insight about how to channel rage into power, but research that solidifies our feelings. Rage Becomes Her asks "What do we lose, personally and as a society, by not listening to women?s anger or resp...

    I am enraged. There's nothing like growing more and more angry while reading a book on anger. And there is plenty of anger to around. Soraya Chemaly, in "Rage Becomes Her," convinced me to plunk down cold, hard cash after reading the first few pages. The first chapter sets the re...

    I thought this book was going to talk about the science and psychology behind a woman?s anger. The author did a great job of that... in the beginning. I felt like the rest of the book was the author listing reason after reason what women today should be offended and angry about. But ...

    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 acti...

    I wish the book had focused more on how to harness women's rage as opposed to all the reasons women have to be consumed by rage. It's a good primer on sexism, if you haven't had much exposure to all the ways women are discriminated against. In the end I was looking for more useful appl...

    Rage becomes me now... ...

    Absolutely a must read!! ...

    Simply: she's telling me things I already know. I don't need help discovering or validating my rage. I'm stopping after the second chapter and I don't know if I'll come back to it. I realize there are women who need this kind of information, but that's just not me: I'm pretty clear...

    Thorough, intersectional, illuminating, and fascinating are just a few of the words I'd use to describe this book. I learned so much and feel inspired to stay angry and take action. Anger doesn't have to be the negative emotion we're taught it is. Anger is the emotion that recognizes i...
