An Evening of Anger
I am furious about things that have happened in my life. Things that I have not been able to influence. And I know that I am not the only woman to feel like this.
Together with some other women I have produced a magazine that documents female rage. The idea behind the project is that female anger is a subject that has not been adequately investigated. I think that there are too few works of art or written studies that deal with the subject. Using workshops and interviews I have received answers from women about what rage means to them. There was only one rule: As long as it fills you with rage you can say anything you like. The most important aspect was the reactions of those taking part. I wanted them to feel that they were being listened to and that they had an opportunity to ventilate and share their knowledge with each other.
My hope is that people who read the magazine will recognize themselves in some of the material. I also hope that I can provide others – including men - with insights as to the forms that female rage can take.
