Andie Newman will be in conversation with Jennifer Cox about her new book: ‘Women Are Angry: Why Your Rage is Hiding and How to Let it Out’

What if you aren’t depressed?

What if you don’t have chronic fatigue?

What if you are just… angry?

In a world where patience is a virtue and being a good girl is for life, women are never allowed to truly express their anger – and it is making us ill. After a lifetime of being told to repress it, to hide it away and fear it, anger has begun to manifest in female bodies in myriad ways we can’t control. And the results are alarming.

In this powerful and eye-opening book, psychotherapist Jennifer Cox takes us on a journey from cradle to grave revealing how, at every stage of our lives, women are conditioned not to speak out or ‘make a fuss’. Jennifer draws on her wealth of therapeutic experience to show us how to tune in to our feelings of frustration and offers us the tools to express what we have subdued for so long.

Women Are Angry will be out on the 4th July 2024 in hardback, eBook, and audiobook.
