In this episode of the podcast, we dive into the topic of anger, specifically focusing on the encounter experienced by Spanish reporter Isa Balado during a live broadcast.
We explore the complex emotions and thoughts that may have been running through her mind as she grappled with the incident.
We discuss the societal expectations and stereotypes that surround women’s anger and how they can limit its expression.
Drawing from Soraya Chemali’s book “Rage Becomes Her,” we examine the social and cultural factors that shape the reception and perception of women’s anger.
We also explore the concept of anger as a force for visibility and empowerment, contrasting it with feelings of shame and the need to appease threats.
Finally, we introduce the idea of transforming anger into “hanger,” a combination of anger and hunger, as a means of harnessing this powerful emotion for positive change.
Join us as we delve into the complexities of gendered anger and its potential for transformation.
