UN­AFRAID OF SPEAK­ING HER MIND: ASH­LEY JUDD

-

The ac­tress and ac­tivist gave a fiery read­ing of a poem about be­ing a “nasty woman” at the Women’s March in Wash­ing­ton last week­end. Af­ter the event, she also took the mike at an af­ter- party at the con­cert venue 9: 30 Club, where she hit back at those who took is­sue with the poem, writ­ten by 19- year- old Nina Dono­van. “I got it from the pres­i­dent of the United States,” she said of the provoca­tive word­ing, specif­i­cally the use of the P word, fa­mously ut­tered by Pres­i­dent Trump in a 2005 video that caught him brag­ging about grab­bing women by their gen­i­talia. “I’m just quot­ing him. And I am re­ally more en­ti­tled to the word be­cause I’ve ac­tu­ally got one.”
