Anger is a tricky side of female leadership. Drawing on what I’ve learned from coaching clients, it appears that many female leaders are taught that they must not express anger. We are often taught to internalize our resentment. “Society shuns angry women, convincing them that their rage is impolite, unattractive, or even unhealthy,” says Rebecca Traister, author of Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger. She highlights that there are clearly double standards when it comes to rage. For women of color, there’s an extra layer of racial prejudice added to this.
