Join us for a conversation with award-winning journalist and author Rebecca Traister on her New York Times Bestselling book, Good and Mad with an audience Q&A to follow. She will be interviewed by Tanya Beat, Director of the San Mateo County Commission on the Status of Women and LGBTQ. Register in advance for this exciting discussion!
Good and Mad was selected as one of the best books of 2018 by NPR, The Washington Post, Elle, and more. With eloquence and fervor, Traister explores the transformative power of female anger and its ability to transcend into a political movement. In both her writing and keynote talks, Traister tracks the long history of female fury, from suffragettes protesting outside the White House to the current #MeToo movement, and explains how society’s condemnation of female emotion has led to women’s slow rise to political power in America.
