"From Rebecca Traister, the New York Times bestselling author of All the Single Ladies--whom Anne Lamott called "the most brilliant voice on feminism in this country"--comes a vital, incisive exploration into the transformative power of female anger and its ability to transcend into a political movement. In the year 2018, it seems as if women's anger has suddenly erupted into the public conversation. But long before Pantsuit Nation, before the Women's March, and before the #MeToo movement, women's anger was not only politically catalytic--but politically problematic. The story of female fury and its cultural significance demonstrates the long history of bitter resentment that has enshrouded women's slow rise to political power in America, as well as the ways that anger is received when it comes from women as opposed to when it comes from men. With eloquence and fervor, Rebecca tracks the history of female anger as political fuel--from suffragettes chaining themselves to the White House to office workers vacating their buildings after Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Here Traister explores women's anger at both men and other women; anger between ideological allies and foes; the varied ways anger is perceived based on its owner; as well as the history of caricaturing and delegitimizing female anger; and the way women's collective fury has become transformative political fuel--as is most certainly occurring today. She deconstructs society's (and the media's) condemnation of female emotion (notably, rage) and the impact of their resulting repercussions. Highlighting a double standard perpetuated against women by all sexes, and its disastrous, stultifying effect, Traister's latest is timely and crucial. It offers a glimpse into the galvanizing force of women's collective anger, which, when harnessed, can change history"--"From Rebecca Traister, the New York Times bestselling author of All the Single Ladies--whom Anne Lamott called "the most brilliant voice on feminism in this country"--comes a vital, incisive exploration into the transformative power of female anger and its ability to transcend into a political movement.

Rebecca Traister's Good and Mad could not have been released at a more perfect time. This book focuses on the history of women's anger and especially highlighted today's political and social climate and the #metoo movement. This was a powerful feminist read and although hard to read at times, it has such an important message. For centuries, women have been taught to suppress their anger. There has been a breaking point in the past two years for women and this anger is currently and can continue to be harnessed collectively to promote much-needed changes.

It is obvious that Traister did in-depth research for this book and it is a heavy read that I have already recommended to so many of my friends and family. Thank you to Netgalley and Simon & Schuster for gifting me this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Historically thorough and focused in its thesis about the productive power and potential of women's anger, this book takes a distinct political focus. I found it instructive and invigorating. Recommended for women learning to engage in activism and men who have read Rage Becomes Her and are ready for a master class. ( )

I want to give this 4.5, but I can't and I refuse to give it 4 stars. If you're familiar with the author, you'll find the smart and compelling writing you expect from her here. ( )

I read this book for our non-fiction book club. A mixed male and female group. It was very interesting to hear what the men have had to do to protect themselves from being accused by women for things they did not do. Professors making sure to stand in the doorway of their classrooms, one foot in and one out to discuss a topic raised by a female student. (Jr high, high school and college) Or, always having a witness or colleague for meetings with female students.
We had an enlightening discussion on all of the sexual angles tried in the workplace that, we women, have experienced and warned other women co-workers, to watch out for a certain male co-worker or boss.
Being together and really listening is one of the best outcomes this book's topic can have to make a difference in our world. ( )

Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.
—Abigail Adams

Angry, yes,
Seething, yes.

Biding her time;

Yes.
Yes.
