Is the Word "Bitch" Ever Empowering?


I appeared on The Daily Drum, WHUR-FM (96.3) Washington, DC/SiriusXM 141 (HUR Voices), to discuss Kina Dore's book, Be That Bitch: Nice Girls Finish Last. She argues that women should embrace the word "bitch" as empowering. I noted that what makes a woman a "bitch" is a moving goal post, and that even if one decides to never embrace that word, Dore is correct that women should focus less on being nice or likable and more on accomplishing our own goals.
