One of our esteemed authors this month, Dr. Britney Cooper (aka Prof. Crunk) weighs in on how women are taught to be "won over". Fascinating stuff.

Stay tuned for an upcoming OSS exclusive interview between Brittney Cooper and Rebecca Traister.

Ilham Alam (ilhamalam) | 3 comments I agree with Dr.Cooper’s viewpoint here. And did you hear about what Offset’a step dad said about Cardi? That “she’s a hot headed female obsessed with social media likes” (paraphrasing it here). He says nothing about his son, who had cheated repeatedly on his wife, Cardi, throughout their short marriage and that’s the reason why Cardi dumped him. Oh no no! But how dare Cardi be angry that her husband cheats on her and
Dump him? Yea that’s the one that gets comments. No wonder, many women stay in terrible relationships because what will people say? Right?

Yup. Women's anger - perceived very differently. Often dismissed. It's a theme! Thanks for your post, ALAM.
