I support Nasty Women who fight for the rights of others. I support Nasty Women because we have hearts and souls and use our minds to push against the unfair cruelty of society. We women have power, and we don't need to fear ourselves or each other as society does. I refuse to be stifled or stopped. I will always stand for what is right and true.
