#NastyWomenWriters is a project inspired by the Women’s March of January 2017, by the women writers who have fought for women’s rights throughout herstory and gave and continue to give voice to the unspoken and unspeakable, who have been inspiration for so many women through time, and an effort to join in the Resistance against the Trump administration’s misogynist, racist, xenophobic, anti-earth agenda.
Hillary Clinton was called a #nastywoman by Donald Trump in the final presidential debate of the 2016 election, raising the ire of every woman who has ever been treated that way when she used her voice to speak the truth, when she used her voice to assert herself, which is 100% ok and allowed unless you live in the patriarchy where women who have voices and use them are called all kind of names, among them, more often than not, #Nasty.
We say no to this shut down on women’s voices and power and claim #nasty as a stance of power. We support #nastywomen’s voices and in this category of our blog in particular the #nastyvoices of women writers who have always been at the forefront of this fight. It’s time to win it once and for all.
No more shut down by the misogynist patriarchal agenda on the voices of powerful women. We give voice to them here.
#Nastywomenwriters offers a platform for nasty women writers who have been inspired by other #nastywomenwriters to speak their truth in an effort to restore balance and have both sexes allowed the same space, respect and airtime.
We intend to represent the true diversity of women on this planet. All women are welcome.
We will inundate the ethers with the voices of #nastywomenwriters of all times and places to remember we are not the first to think these #nastythoughts, and assert them with the intention of liberating women now and for all time. We have a herstory that is documented, vital and alive, whose wisdom we call forth now to empower our current actions in the Resistance.
Through these posts we call forth our fierce, intelligent and powerful ancestresses to support and guide us in our quest. We offer them appreciation and gratitude for their work by giving their powerful voices airtime now.
Let it forever be known that the female pen is nastier indeed than the sword.
