A transformative book urging twenty-first century-women to embrace their anger and harness it as a tool for lasting personal and societal change.

How many women cry when angry because we’ve held it in for so long? How many discover that anger turned inward is depression? Soraya Chemaly’s Rage Becomes Her will be good for women, and for the future of this country. After all, women have a lot to be angry about.


This explosive, vital, and unapologetic book lifts the lid on a hugely important but little-discussed aspect of gender inequality. With skill, wit, and sharp insight, Chemaly peels back layers of cultural norms and repression to lay bare the reality of women’s rage.


—LAURA BATES, author of Girl Up and Everyday Sexism
