Ashley Judd has made many people angry and proud at the same time. The actress slammed Donald Trump and insulted his beloved daughter, Ivanka Trump. Judd delivered an epic “Nasty Woman” speech in front of thousands of other women and men, (proud fathers who want to stand up for their young daughters), who are currently taking part in the Women’s March in Washington, DC. There are also Sister Marches being held in New York and Los Angeles.
The event planned in Chicago was canceled because there were too many participants. Believe it or not, there are more people taking part in the marches than in Trump’s inauguration. There is also more star power at the Women’s March than during the inauguration.
The 45th president had to fork out millions of dollars to get singers that Americans never heard of for his event. Today’s rallies have attracted the likes of Cher, Alicia Keys, feminist icon Gloria Steinem, Scarlett Johansson, Janelle Monáe, Madonna, Michael Moore, Yoko Ono, Emma Watson, America Ferrera, and much more.
The march was put together for women to voice their opinions on the many anti-progressive stances taken by conservatives and for them to protest against and resist Trump.
During the 2016 race, Trump never took responsibility for the alarming comments he made in the 2005 Access Hollywood Tape where he said that as a star he could grab women by their private parts.
Dozens of women with the help of power attorney Gloria Allred have come out to say that the billionaire assaulted them. He denied the claims.
The mogul was also involved in a bitter feud with Alicia Machado, who won the Miss Universe pageant in 1996. Trump body shamed and embarrassed the former beauty queen on Twitter and live television. He also made some provocative remarks about abortion and bashed Clinton’s stamina and looks.
Millions of angry women are protesting Trump for the reasons above, including Judd. At the rally, Judd, who is a survivor of sexual assault, said: “I am not as nasty as racism, fraud, conflict of interest, homophobia, sexual assault, transphobia, white supremacy, misogyny, ignorance, white privilege. I’m not as nasty as using little girls like Pokemon before their bodies have even developed. I am not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, like your wet dreams infused with your own genes. But, yeah, I’m a nasty woman, a loud, vulgar proud woman. I’m not nasty, like the combo of Trump and Pence being served up to me in my voting booth. I’m nasty like the battles my grandmothers fought to get me into that voting booth. I’m nasty, like the fight for wage equality. Scarlett Johansson, why were the female actors paid less than half of what the male actors earned last year? See, even when we do go into higher paying jobs, our wages are still cut with blades sharpened by testosterone.”
It is hard to predict how Trump will react to those comments.
