Meet 19-Year-Old Nina Donovan: Author of the "Nasty Woman" Poem Performed at the Women's March
The collection of speeches and performances shared at Women's March on Washington featured a multitude of women's rights issues from many perspectives.
One of those unforgettable moments was when Ashley Judd performed a show-stopping beat poem, bringing to light the inequalities faced in America from the viewpoint of a 19 year-old young woman who authored the poem.
"I reclaimed it," Donovan said, according to USA Today.
The poem's lyrics respond to his comment by weaving through the realities of what it really means to be a nasty woman.
"I am not as nasty as racism, fraud, conflict of interest, homophobia, sexual assault, transphobia, white supremacy, misogyny, ignorance and white privilege," she said in her poem.
Judd had seen Donovan perform, and asked for her permission to share her poem at the D.C.-based march.
"I was seeing the physical form of everything I was saying in my poem," adding, "If we keep fighting, we can all be equal one day. It just shows so much hope in this city and this nation," she said, according to Women in the World.
