Today we're talking about righteous anger and indignation with writer and activist Soraya Chemaly. Her book Rage Becomes Her explores how women's expressions of anger are vital to their own health, freedom, and wellbeing.

Despite the fact that we women have plenty of things to be mad about - unequal pay, unchecked sexual harassment and abuse, just to name a few - anger is still considered a taboo emotion around the world. We're called emotional, hysterical, irrational, and yet Soraya argues that anger holds information that is essential to our liberation.

This is not a self-help book for anger management, but rather an in-depth investigation into the perils and possibilities of anger and what's possible when we unleash our sacred rage on the world. Take a listen.

"What people are saying when they're angry is that they have a need and they're asking their society - whether that's family or their workplace or their spouse - to pay attention to that need." #RageBecomesHer author @schemaly on #CTZN Podcast: ctznwell.org @ctznwell @kkellyyoga
