Women aren't supposed to show anger - DUH! We're supposed to be pretty, and smell good, and act nice, and make babies.

Not Sure

Unfortunately, I have way too much of a temper and tend to release it with no level of appropriateness. I wish I was better at holding my anger in.

I personally (of course) believe that women should express their anger. I do think society tries to make us push it back down and "calm down" "smile" "relax" "be polite" -- BUT I think the dialogue is out there that we don't want to smile all the time. We are not window dressings and we get angry.

you are allowed to be angry! If you swallow it, it can only fester. Let that stuff out!

I wonder what's going to become of Hillary under all of this pressure to be in control, to smile, to not be upset.

I think that we hate angry women. We are turned off in general by women showing emotions which is so wrong. Everyone has these emotions, men and women alike.

No, as a society I think we are against angry women. I've always been told to "calm down" and "relax". That has never made someone angry "relax"

No, there are not! This is soooo interesting. We started off doing an episode on anxiety, and the whole notion of ANGER surfaced. We realized that women have no outlet for our anger, so we just squash it down, hoping it never comes out, which clearly is not realistic.

women are expected to be polite and sweet, not angry.

Society says that it's NOT socially acceptable for women to express anger. Do you agree? #YoureNotCrazy
