Summary
Often accused of being overly emotional and mad, Spike Gillespie offers up a lifetime's worth of anger that all women can relate to. Two parts anger and one part forgiveness. Pissed Off is an examination of Gillespie's encounters with her own rage and the inevitable fallouts that have permeated every facet of her life. Opposed to the notion that women must quell their anger. Gilespie encourages women to wield it and own it as a force of motivation. her story, as well as other women's personal narratives, describes the positive change, she also emphasizes the value in forgiving others as a way to move beyond the storm of habitual anger
Summary
A personal resource for women who have been accused of undue anger offers counsel on how to both allow oneself to experience a healthy range of strong feelings and forgive, drawing on the stories of everyday women as well as the author's own experiences to explain how to use anger as an appropriate catalyst for change and communication without becoming consumed.
