The authors summarize the existing literature on women’s anger and conclude that, without appreciation of the context of the affective expression, any discussion of the meaning, intent, and consequences of anger is meaningless. They argue that 1) anger in women may be a healthy manifestation of self-definition and self-identity, 2) anger in women is very much shaped by culture, and 3) anger in women is very much interpreted by culture. The ultimate conclusion is that, through the lifespan of a woman, there emerges an increasing tension between her own putatively angering experience and the societal expectations of her to repress and/or suppress those angry emotions. Obviously, in psychoanalytic terms, the latter could result in harmful diversion of anger into subjective psychological disorganization, dysfunctional family interactions, criminal aggressiveness, and/or general chaotic dynamics. At best, overt anger in women continues to be viewed as unfeminine, inappropriate, and off-putting.
