This week, there was one insult every smart woman was happy to own.

Nasty women get it done. Nasty women express their power. Nasty women put ignorant men like Donald Trump in their place.  Nasty women are tough. Nasty women are smart. Nasty women vote.

When Trump interrupted Hillary Clinton, uttering the words “Such a nasty woman,” at the final US Presidential Debate, he banged the nail in his own coffin. Across the internet and the world, ‘nasty’ women everywhere have co-opted the highly gendered slogan as their new catch-cry of empowerment.

This week on Mamamia Out Loud, we discuss how ‘nasty woman’ became our war-cry. Post continues below.  

When you go to nastywomengetshitdone.com it redirects you to Hillary Clinton’s website. Within hours of the comment, the internet was flooded with merchandise including t-shirts, badges and even cross-stitches, paying tribute to nasty women everywhere. And for the past week, Janet Jackson’s throwback tune Nasty has being playing on repeat.

We want to be nasty women. And we want a nasty woman to run the world. So here’s to all the nasty women… Want to be one?

Are you offended by the word ‘nasty’?
