"Female Anger. You ask: why give anger a gender?"
Greta's elevator pitch
After some research within the feminist literature in relation to the #MeToo movement has revealed, female anger is an emotion which plays a significant role within the workings of this social movement. However, due to its societal pre-conceptions and historical suppression it has not yet gained the focus of attention it deserves. In this Thesis, I investigate what type of anger is being supported by feminists in practice. Is it a productive and future-oriented anger, or one that remains stuck in the past holding
retributive wishes? By relying on Nussbaum’s three types of anger, using a re-adaptation of feminist CDA, and analysing a sample of the voices of #MeToo, the complexity of the matter, but also the potency and revolutionary force female anger holds, if used consciously, is underlined.
