Nasty women, unite - and read this compendium of fascinating quotations about powerful women through history. When Donald Trump referred to Hillary Clinton as "such a nasty woman", women felt a jolt of recognition - and 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. The words come from figures of 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."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
