Rebecca Traister, writer at large for New York magazine and contributing editor at Elle, recently published her third book, “Good and Mad,” an examination of what happens not only when women get angry, but when they deploy that anger to galvanize social change. Women’s anger, Traister writes, has played a pivotal role in shaping the country: “Female rage in America has a long and righteous history, one that we have, very pointedly, never been taught.” 

Traister sets out to remedy that by looking at famous instances of female rage marshaled to create change, from the suffragettes to Shirley Chisholm, from Mother Jones to the Mama Grizzlies of the Tea Party.
