The SPH Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Team (EDIT) invites all Students, Faculty and Staff to join us for an open dialogue around these topics, to help build an open space within the SPH community to bring questions and concerns. For this session, we will watch a brief talk on Ted.com by Soraya Chemaly, “The Power of Women’s Anger,” during the first fifteen minutes, and spend the rest of the hour discussing this topic.
“Anger is a powerful emotion — it warns us of threat, insult, indignity and harm. But across the world, girls and women are taught that their anger is better left unvoiced,” says author Soraya Chemaly. Why is that, and what might we lose in this silence? In a provocative, thoughtful talk, Chemaly explores the dangerous lie that anger isn’t feminine, showing how women’s rage is justified, healthy and a potential catalyst for change.
Feel free to bring your lunch! Microwave, coffee, tea and water are provided.
