Soraya Chemaly is the author of the critically-acclaimed book, Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Womens’ Anger, and that’s exactly what we’re talking about today: women’s anger, its power, and why this anger is often misunderstood and mistreated in society. We also chat about the tropes associate with angry women (eg. the “angry black woman,” the “crazy white lady,” and “the fiery Latina,”) and dive into how dangerous it can be—both personally and politically—for women to suppress their anger. Mica also confesses some discomfort she's been feeling over negative generalizations made about cis white men, to which Soraya responds that its important to consider who's discomfort we're choosing to centre. There is sooo much to learn in this episode. What an honour it was to have Soraya—a political and intellectual powerhouse—on the show!
