Whether its the amplified voices of millions or the unapologetic voice of one, women struggle to be taken seriously when their anger is expressed. Considered funny, hysterical, or simply unworthy of validity or belief, women’s anger is ostracized while men’s is exalted. We’ll break down this communication double-standard and explore solutions for equality of self-expression. Includes a discussion about the marginalization of black women’s anger via early adultization of black girls.
