Portland musicians address #MeToo movement in 'Nasty Woman' video

Portland musicians release 'Nasty Women' song

Dozens of Portland musicians and neighbors created a song and video, called "Nasty Woman," about women's empowerment.        

The song was inspired by the moment President Trump called Hillary Clinton a ‘nasty woman’ during a 2016 presidential debate.

Ara Lee and Beth Wood co-wrote the song. They said they were inspired and frustrated by the misogyny of the presidential campaign and decided to claim the title Nasty Woman as something empowering.

“I hope that this song empowers people, I hope it inspires people, it certainly has inspired me,” said Wood. “I hope it reminds us of how strong we are when we raise our voices together.”

Lee and Wood had been working on Nasty Woman for months, but added timely references to Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo movement before launching the video last week.

You can download the song on iTunes and Bandcamp for $1, and all profits will go to Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette.
