Read this:

“Every woman has a well-stocked arsenal of anger potentially useful against those oppressions, personal and institutional, which brought that anger into being.  Focused with precision it can become a powerful source of energy serving progress and change.  And when I speak of change, I do not mean a simple switch of positions or a temporary lessening of tensions, nor the ability to smile or feel good.  I am speaking of a basic and radical alteration in those assumptions underlining our lives.  […]

“But anger expressed and translated into action in the service of our vision and our future is a liberating and strengthening act of clarification, for it is in the painful process of this translation that we identify who are our allies with whom we have grave differences, and who are our genuine enemies.

“Anger is loaded with information and energy.”

~ Audre Lorde, June 1981, published in Sister Outsider, p.127.

Well said, both.
