Wynonna Judd Sounds Off on Twitter After Ashley Judd’s Women’s March Speech
Wynonna Judd usually uses social media to share news, bits of wisdom and faith, or to have discussions with her fans, but she found herself in a very different position on Saturday (Jan. 21). After her sister, Ashley Judd, took the stage at the Women's March in Washington, D.C., to deliver an impassioned speech denouncing President Donald Trump, Wynonna turned to Twitter to explain her own position at length.
Ashley Judd's speech was one of the most talked-about moments of the day-long march, which according to multiple media reports drew more people to Washington to protest the election of President Trump than his inauguration drew the day before (Trump called those reports "dishonest" during his comments at the CIA on Saturday, according to the New York Times, while incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer slammed the media from his podium during a press briefing at which he took no questions).

The actor, author and activist read a four-minute free-form poem titled "Nasty Woman," written by 19-year-old Nina Donovan of Franklin, Tenn., a Nashville suburb. Judd's diatribe took on what she and many of the other marchers see as Trump's misogyny, racism, homophobia and bigotry, and drew a rousing reaction from the other protesters on hand in the nation's capitol.
Some of the words were couched in not-too-subtle references to Trump's infamous Access Hollywood tape, and Judd drew sharp criticism from some quarters after it aired on multiple television networks. Wynonna Judd spent much of the day Saturday explaining her own position via Twitter, making it clear that she saw the matter very differently from her sister and saying she wants to be "part of the solution, not the problem."
Judd continued to interact back and forth with her Twitter followers for hours, and the matter was still on her mind on Sunday (Jan. 22), when she returned for another flurry of tweets to explain why she continues to join in on Twitter even when it so often divisive.
