Michaela McGuire on why she's so excited to have Rebecca Traister in this year's program:

"Rebecca Traister is one of the most brilliant feminist voices writing today, and entirely of the moment. Rebecca’s new book Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger was published in October last year, the week after Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing in the US. As Christine Blasey Ford calmly laid out the details of her alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh, it felt like the whole world was watching, considering why it is that men have the luxury to express their rage when women do not. Rebecca’s investigation into why male and female anger play out so differently in our culture is a vital read."
