My cousin, Kenny, was jogging alongside me. I had to pedal slower to keep pace with him. He was ten years old, I was eleven. We hadn’t been friends very long.

Below is the full text of Ashley Judd's version of Nina Donavan' spoken poem, "I Am a Nasty Woman." “I am a nasty woman. I’m not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheeto dust. A man whose words are a distract to America; Electoral College-sanctioned hate...
