The discussion and observation of women’s publicly growing anger may seem like a recent and partisan issue.

But Rebecca Traister, author of Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger, wants readers to take away something different from her new book.

“My argument is not that women's anger is always righteous,” she told Morning Edition’s Rachel Martin.

“It's that it's very often politically potent and yet we're told not to take it seriously, still.”

It’s also neither a recent development nor necessarily a safe one for those who express their anger, Traister says.

Listen to her discuss the book further below or head to NPR’s website to read interview highlights.
