June 17, 2019 - Warren Says She Owns Her Anger

In a profile for The New York Times, Warren says of her anger, “I’ll own it.” Talking about women sharing their own distress with the issue of sexual harassment and assault, she explains, “Well, yeah. No kidding that a woman might be angry about that. Women have a right to be angry about being treated badly.” Warren implies that women are often criticized for expressing anger in ways that men are not, an issue that comes up again in the fall of 2019. At that point, Warren is even more direct in describing criticism of women’s anger as sexist.
