The power of women's anger | Soraya Chemaly
Anger is a powerful emotion -- it warns us of threat, insult, indignity and harm. But across the world, girls and women are taught that their anger is better left unvoiced, says author Soraya Chemaly. Why is that, and what might we lose in this silence? In a provocative, thoughtful talk, Chemaly explores the dangerous lie that anger isn't feminine, showing how women's rage is justified, healthy and a potential catalyst for change.

Jenny: [00:00:00] And now here Soraya. Hi there Soraya. And welcome to the show. It's great to have you with us. Soraya: [00:00:07] It's wonderful to be here. Thank you for asking me. How Soraya got started Soraya M Lane Amazon best selling author Jenny: [00:00:10] Beginning at the beginning was there a Once Upon a Time moment that got you started in writing and was there any sort of catalyst for it. Soraya: [00:00:22] Look I don't know if there was a specific catalyst for it. I've always been a huge reader and I've probably been a writer all my life really, from when I was first at school. I came up with these wonderful stories that I used to share with my teachers. So I think I've just always enjoyed writing and always loved reading. I think sometimes if you're a very keen reader the next step often is to try and write something yourself. And so I started. I found my way into writing again when I was at university and just thought 'I actually want to do this.' I want to see my books on the shelf with my name on there. And I just started and went from there. Jenny: [00:01:00] Fantastic. Well you've now got an extremely impressive list of contemporary romance to your name, as well as the historical fiction we'll be talking about. You've been writing pretty solidly since university? Soraya: [00:01:14] I started writing quite seriously actually, writing my first full length novel when I was at university. I was probably around 19 or 20 and it took me two years to write that first book. So I had been writing for a long time. I sold my first book when I was pregnant with my first child. And I was 27 then. So I have been I had been writing for a little while now. I guess I've been published for about nine years. Jenny: [00:01:38] Fantastic. So you've now got a really impressive list of contemporary romance nearly 30 books that counted on your website. And we'll talk about that contemporary romance a little later. But the most recent books are branching out into historical fiction and they've been doing particularly well. Both Wives of War and The Spitfire Girls have been AmazonÂ charters and KindleÂ best sellers. Now they are World War Two historical fiction. Tell us why you made that change? Switching from romance to history Wives of War - Soraya M Lane Soraya: [00:02:13] Oh look, it was it's something that sort of came about organically in the end. I mean I still love writing contemporary romance but I actually went back to university and did an MFA so a Master of Fine Arts and Creative Writing at the University of Canterbury and I went back there and thought I need to challenge myself and write something different. [00:02:31] And I'd had this idea for a historical World War II story for quite some time and I thought you know this is this is the chance. This is the time for me to to really
