The Politics of a “Nasty” Woman
Workshop Level: Intermediate

When Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton, “a Nasty woman” during the final presidential debate of 2016, the concept of the “Nasty” woman reemerged into popular discourse. From the #IAmANastyWomanBecause social media campaign to Ashley Judd’s sharing a “Nasty” poem at the 2017 Women’s March, being “Nasty” seems to be gaining a lot of popularity. But what is a “Nasty” woman and who gets to define her?!? This interactive workshop will explore the historical, political and societal implications of a “nasty” woman. Participants will be given the opportunity to ask themselves: To Be or Not to Be: A “Nasty” Woman?!?
