Empowering Wisdom from Women Who Break the Rules

Nasty women, unite—‌and read this compendium of fascinating quotations about powerful women through history.

My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today. I knew it then as purpose. —Bette Davis

When Donald Trump referred to Hillary Clinton as such a nasty woman during the last presidential debate in 2016, women everywhere felt a jolt of recognition—‌whatever their politics or feelings about Clinton. In response, they promptly turned his insult into an empowering slogan. This book celebrates the now-ironic phrase with a collection of quotations by and about strong women, both critical and positive. The words come from figures in ancient history like Cleopatra; founding mothers like Mary Wollstonecraft and Elizabeth Cady Stanton; feminist icons such as Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan; politicians and government leaders; groundbreakers in arts and culture; celebrities; and the mothers, daughters, and sisters at home.
