Event description

Description

This is for the feminists who feel all the feelings in the pursuit of creating social change.


For those who feel overwhelmed or numbed out by the tragedy of current events. For those who’ve been told they are ‘too emotional’. For those who are determined to expand their feminisms while taking care of themselves.


Join us for a half-day seminar on intersectionality, feminist history, responsible anger, and emotional expression. For those who have previously attended Processing Rage, this event is a similar version of the one in June.

Processing Rage is for women, femmes, trans & non-binary folks who feel angry about the patriarchy and would like to develop a healthier relationship with their anger. We will be doing this through interactive activities, facilitated conversations, psychoeducation, and vocal expression. Refreshments will be provided.


KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Delve into the deep history of sexism & patriarchal violence
  • Recognize the systemic and interpersonal ways sexism and femmephobia impact our relationship with our emotions
  • Learn more about intersectionality and privilege
  • Dismantle self-oppressive beliefs around anger
  • Differentiate between responsible anger vs. violence
  • Explore the range of expression of anger in a structured manner
