15 "I Am A Nasty Woman Because" Tweets Whose Messages Of Female Empowerment Will Inspire You
When Donald Trump made his now infamous remark at the third presidential debate, he probably didn't think that it might have been the final nail in the coffin of his candidacy. When Trump called Hillary Clinton "such a nasty woman," America's female population collectively burst out laughing and brilliantly repurposed the phrase. Now, thousands of women are using the hashtag "I Am A Nasty Woman Because" to spread a message of female empowerment.
Women are touching on all sorts of points with the now-viral hashtag, from voting to abortion rights to standing up to mansplaining at work to rejecting what outdated tradition deems is "ladylike." Taken all together, it's the great big feminist-fueled wave that Clinton has been waiting for all along. Maybe there are still questions about her record, maybe questions remain about some of her policies, maybe she wasn't exactly the candidate that everyone wanted — and then her opponent makes an absurd, gratuitously sexist remark at the debate, and now she is all of us. And politics aside, the hashtag brings messages of female empowerment to the foreground, right where it deserves to be.
Without ever meaning to do it, Trump inspired a feminist outcry. Huffington Post women asked the female side of Twitter to tell them hashtag "I Am A Nasty Woman Because," and the results aren't disappointing in the slightest. Here are some of the best responses to which all the nasty women out there can relate.
