An Evening with Rebecca Traister,
author of Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger
Monday, September 9
A Best of 2018 Selection: The Washington Post and NPR
Long before the #MeToo movement, women’s public anger was not only catalytic, but politically problematic. Good and Mad, a best-selling story of female fury and its cultural significance, demonstrates its crucial role in women’s slow rise to political power in America. Traister tracks the history of female anger as political fuel—from suffragettes marching on the White House to office workers vacating their buildings after Clarence Thomas’s Supreme Court confirmation. This “admirably rousing narrative” (The Atlantic) offers a glimpse into the galvanizing force of women’s collective anger, which, when harnessed, can change history.
All events are free and open to the public, however an RSVP is required at nationalartsclub.eventbrite.com.
This event is a designated Multiple Perspectives: Women in the Arts event.
The National Arts Club is thrilled to launch our 2019-20 season with "Multiple Perspectives: Women in the Arts,” a three-month festival (September - November 2019) exploring women creators, leaders, and innovators. The festival features over 50 performances, readings, presentations, and exhibitions focused on the arts, past, present, and future. “Since its founding in 1898, women have been welcomed as full members of our Club. ‘Multiple Perspectives’ is an opportunity for the Club to build on this commitment while fulfilling our mission to promote the arts,” said Linda Zagaria, Club President.
