• After I read from my work entitled “Poems for Women in Rage,” a white woman asks me: “Are you going to do anything with how we can deal directly with our anger?
Her paper documents how AAWE leadership traits are very different from white women’s.
They’re actually similar to white male leadership traits.
Your fear of that anger will teach you nothing, also.
If your dealings with other women reflect those attitudes, then my anger and your attendant fears are spotlights that can be used for growth in the same way I have used learning to express anger for my growth. Guilt and defensiveness are bricks in a wall against which we all flounder; they serve none of our futures.
