Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger by Rebecca Traister

Good and Mad (2018) lists the many reasons for feminist political anger. This anger, though repressed for the past few decades, has recently reemerged, as evidenced by the 2017 Women’s March and the #MeToo movement. By understanding the historical, political, cultural and economic currents underlying these two landmark events, we can better understand history as it unfolds before our eyes.

  • Women who are sick and tired of gender inequality
  • Men trying to understand where feminist political anger is coming from
  • News followers who want a context for understanding the #MeToo movement
