Talk Soraya Chemaly & Laura Bates: Feminism in Trump's America

Soraya Chemaly & Laura Bates: Feminism in Trump's America

Synopsis

Get angry at a discussion between US and UK feminist activists Soraya Chemaly and Laura Bates on the power of rage in the fight against misogyny.

The two influential feminists discuss the idea that, contrary to the barrage of self-help rhetoric about 'letting go', rage is one of the most important resources that women have – and they reveal how women can go about owning that rage.

Chemaly's book Rage Becomes Her is a conversation-shifting book analysing female anger as it relates to topics like self-worth, objectification and silence. The writer illuminates how and why we repress our anger, revealing the harm that this causes, and helps us recognise the liberating power of marshalling our anger as a vital tool for positive change.
