After searching through pages of creative commons licensed images on flickr for "angry woman," I was surprised to find that the most convicing image didn't even show the woman's face. I searched "angry man" as well, and after a few pages of neutral stuff, I found a glut of images of men that looked, well, actually angry.
Since the NYT article came out about BlogHer 08, there have been quite a few angry people getting on the mike, some in uplifting and powerful ways both as posts and comments, and others, both men and women, have been just plain snipey.
Why is it such an explosion for everyone to be angry and riled up about a women's technology conference? I think the question for me is broader: why is it so rare to see a woman get angry these days in broad daylight (or screenlight) and what does that mean for those of us who have issues we feel angry about?
