Part 3 – Teaching on Anger with Fiona (7:30 – 9:00pm)

“My particular interest in the topic of anger comes out of my doctoral work, in which I am studying Youth Ministry and particularly the development of healthy spirituality in teenage girls. And in my research, I have come across this idea, that of the great things about being a woman is that by and large, you get better education about emotions, there are many studies that tell us that girls are encouraged to feel, explore, process and talk about their emotions way more than boys. The exception to this is the emotion of anger, which is encouraged in boys and dismissed in girls. So women get to be happy, sad, infatuated, tranquil, hopeful, disappointed, inquisitive, excluded, dejected, cheeky, perplexed and so on, but not angry. And it seems this is mostly because girls, far more than boys, are expected to be nice. And nice people are not angry.”
