怒 [nù] Rage & [女 nǚ] Female
I have been doing research about Female Rage recently. Below are two surprising but pleasant learnings:
1. In Mandarin, the pronunciations of these two words (nù & nǚ) are quite similar.
2. The character 怒 (rage) is formed by three parts: 女(female), 又(again) & 心(heart), which means at old time, people might think ' rage = female heart is touched again'
