"There was not an ounce of submission, not a drop of passivity, no suggestion of shrivel."

??? This. I never wanted to be a journalist or investigative reporter, but I did want to be Murphy, deeply passionate with as many convictions as flaws. At the end of the pilot, she sings along with Aretha's "Natural Woman", as passionate as she was off key. I loved that.

Original #NastyWoman

NovelGirl82 I loved Murphy!! I aspired to be that type of woman. 6mo
SleepyDragon @NovelGirl82 I was 12 when the series premiered, and used to watch it with my parents. I was at the age when a kid is just starting to figure out who they want to be. I also wanted to be Julia Sugarbaker on "Designing Women," but ended up more like Mary Jo. Lol 6mo
NovelGirl82 Yes! We loved Designing Women, too. Julia, Murphy, & Dorothy from Golden Girls were the TV women that I looked up to. 6mo
SleepyDragon @NovelGirl82 I also liked the way that Corky became Murphy-like in her own way by the end of the series, and consequently in the relaunch this past year. There's a scene in the season finale in which she corners Mike Pence in the men's room to ask him questions and gets carried out by Secret Service. I think it illustrates how you can be a feminine feminist, and Faith Ford shines in this capacity. 6mo

Growing up, Murphy Brown, the original #NastyWoman, was one of my idols. I was so excited that they revised the show to comment on the trump presidency and the lunacy of the gop, and I watched and enjoyed every episode. This is her second memoir, a Dollar Tree find, and I started it yesterday instead of working on reviews and stats for April. I'll get to that, eventually.

Probably only read for maybe 30 minutes this weekend. (I honestly didn't even attempt this readathon. Between my baby girl having a traumatizing injury and my husband having to work all Saturday, there was no point. I'm too distracted to focus on reading.) Still, I'm plugging away in hopes that I will finish this book by the end of the month. #Resist #Persist #nastywoman #Americanpolitics #MakeAmericaNormalAgain

TrishB Hope your daughters ok. 2y
AmyG Yes, hope things are ok with your daughter. 2y
SleepyDragon @TrishB @AmyG Thank you so much. She fell and cut her forehead on the coffee table. She's mending, and we have an appt to have the two staples removed Wed. She's 2.5 yrs, and seems to be dealing/coping well. The whole episode has been emotionally draining for all, though. If I could, I'd wrap them all up in bubble wrap. 2y
TrishB Aww....it‘s hard being a parent! 💜 2y

🎧 Listening to more of #WhatHappened this morning and I had to stop to create this graphic and share it with you. To keep from tearing up😢, I had to balance this heartfelt quote with with her awesome wardrobe. 👩🏼‍💼 No one else can rock a colorful pantsuit quite like #HRC. I just love her. 😍 I love her poise, her eloquent words, her strength, and her awesome pantsuit collection. 🙌🏼 #imwithher 💙#imstillwithher #feminist #nastywoman 🙋🏻‍♀️

Andrea313 I just love her, too, and am so happy when other people voice their support. ❤ 2y
Jess7 Absolutely! You should have seen me during the campaign. I convinced my husband who is usually apathetic about politics to watch every debate with me, and on Election Day it was a proud moment for me when we both cast our votes for the first female US presidential candidate. My Facebook status that day was “Excited to witness history today. #imwithher ..” Unfortunately what happened later wasn‘t the history I was hoping for. @Andrea313 (edited) 2y
SexyCajun I listened to the audiobook and LOVED IT!!!! 2y

Had the pleasure of seeing @jasonporath and I was honored to receive an advance copy of his newest book, Tough Mothers. The love and care put into this is evident on each and every page. It's as beautiful as it is informational.

The gorgeous #coverart attracted me, and then, I read the flap and found that this is a historical novel based on Eliza Lucas‘s own letters. Eliza sounds like quite a #NastyWoman: she develops an indigo-dye business to save her family AND defies the law to teach slaves to read. Definitely a #TBRtemptation! #BAM

#Girls #LunaLovegood #LouiseBelcher #Heroes #Heroines | I hope these girls are role models for years to come. And I love these #FunkoPops and can't wait to put them up in my classroom to remind me that I am a #strongwoman and I am a #nastywoman - most of all, I'm a living, loving, breathing, Human Woman. #kickassgirls

Texreader Is that really Luna and does that pop figure really exist? If so, I must have it!! 2y
That-Bookish-Hiker Love Bob's Burgers😍 2y
hermyknee @Texreader yes! I found her on Amazon! I always shop smile.amazon.com, so that a minute amount of what I spend goes to helping my local SPCA... it makes me feel less bad about spending so much money on books and bookish things! 😋 2y
