Most Women You Know Are Angry — and That’s All Right | Teen Vogue

Young women who come to my events often tell me that they want to be more forthright, but they’re extremely worried about “coming across as too angry.” I usually reply that there are worse things to be. If you stand up for yourself, if you assert your right to self-respect and bodily autonomy, if you raise your voice above a whisper, if you leave the house without a sweet smile slathered across your face, some people will inevitably call you shrill, a scold, a nag, bitter, a bitch. And that’s all right. Bitches, in the fragrant words of Tina Fey, get stuff done.”
