Rebecca Traister: The Place of Anger in a Progressive Movement

Rebecca Traister, author of "All the Single Ladies," is currently writing a book about women, anger, and social/political change. She asks herself: How do I view the reality of women's anger--as a nation-shaping catalytic, often progressive social force--with my Quaker education that complicated my feelings

about the use of aggression? This talk is about the process of trying to fit the anger so many of us are feeling about power imbalances and injustice into a Quaker framework. What is at odds with it? What makes sense? A discussion period will follow. Free and open to the public.
