ImagineIt: Good and Mad with Rebecca Traister
Registration required and opens Friday, February 8 at 9 am
In conversation with Aimée Morrison, Associate ProfessorUniversity of Waterloo
We’re told to calm down, that anger is bad for our health.
But after Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 election, the #MeToo year that led to allegations, firings, and criminal charges at the highest levels across almost every industry, and turmoil within CanLit, women are good and mad.
What happens now?
Join us for an indepth conversation with Rebecca Traister, author of Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger. Traister’s book looks back at how anger has shaped the waves of feminism, and how women today are using their rage to galvanize a 21st century revolution.
Rebecca Traister is writer-at-large for New York magazine and a contributing editor at Elle. A National Magazine Award finalist, she has covered women in politics, media and entertainment from feminist perspective for more than a decade, writing for The New Republic, Salon, The Nation, the New York Times, and the Washington Post among others. Her first book, the award-winning Big Girls Don’t Cry, was about the role of women in the 2008 presidential campaign. Her second book, All the Single Ladies, is about class, race, sexual orientation and social change through the lens of single women – a growing demographic.
