Nasty women aren't afraid to stand up to the patriarchy.

When Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a nasty woman, he meant it as an insult and as an old-school sexist remark. What he didn’t realize was that women everywhere would embrace it and turn it into a brag. Women decided that "nasty" would be a quality that women would inspire to be.

Nasty boys may not mean a thing, as Janet Jackson said in her 1986 song "Nasty Boy," but now, over 30 years later, nasty women mean everything.

We should all aspire to be nasty women as they have opinions and a voice. They say the things that women aren’t supposed to say, especially if their horoscope indicates they should stay mum. Nasty women act, march for justice, and aren’t afraid of being unlikeable. Nasty women take back their power and, in turn, become empowered.

Nasty women are the women who stand in solidarity and fight for LGBTQ rights, education, racial equality, accessible and affordable healthcare, and reproductive rights. Standing up for what you believe in and defending the rights of others is not just nasty, it’s noble.

Are nasty women angry? Yes, but it's their anger that propels them to take a stand and fight.

We all have varying degrees of nastiness in us. You might not participate in every march but that doesn’t mean that you aren't doing what you can to fight injustice. You may not be screaming on the front lines, but when you encounter racism or sexism in your own home, you stand up and defend the issues you feel are important.

We’re all nasty women in some way. And here are the zodiac signs who are nasty women, ranked from most to least.
