On anger. It is okay to be angry–it is more than okay, it is necessary. When we stop being angry, we stop pushing for change, and we let the patriarchy, sexism, racism, and all the other hateful forces win. My anger is as much a part of me as is my happiness. I think people think of anger as a negative emotion, but it is only negative if you let it control you, instead of the other way around. Women’s anger will change the world.
So for this New Year, I am making sure to take my anger with me.
