At the 500,000 women’s march on Washington on January 21, 2017, Ashley Judd read a poem written by Nina Donovan.  Nina is a 19 year-old woman from Tennessee.  She allowed the actress to recite it.

‘I AM A NASTY WOMAN.”

This is a phrase or an insult that Trump used against Hillary Clinton during the final debate.  It resulted because Trump did not like Hillary’s truth about him.

Ashley began by saying,

I am a nasty woman. I’m as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetos dust. A man whose words are a distract to America. Electoral college-sanctioned, hate-speech contaminating this national anthem. I’m not as nasty as Confederate flags being tattooed across my city. 

Maybe the South actually is going to rise again. Maybe for some it never really fell. Blacks are still in shackles and graves, just for being black. Slavery has been reinterpreted as the prison system in front of people who see melanin as animal skin. I am not as nasty as a swastika painted on a pride flag, and I didn’t know devils could be resurrected but I feel Hitler in these streets. A mustache traded for a toupee.”

“I am not as nasty as racism, fraud, conflict of interest, homophobia, sexual assault, transphobia, white supremacy, misogyny, ignorance and white privilege.”
