A selection of women's most acerbic comments on life, chock-full of quoatations from Margaret Atwood, Jane Austen, Hillary Clinton, Rita Hayworth, Erica Jong, Oprah, Madonna, and more

Forget scratching and hair-pulling: once a girl gets past the age of eight, she knows her deadliest weapon is her tongue. Women’s Wicked Wit is a selection of women’s most acerbic comments on life, chock-full of quotations from Margaret Atwood, Jane Austen, Tallulah Bankhead, Hillary Clinton, Bette Davis, George Eliot, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Germaine Greer, Rita Hayworth, Erica Jong, Madonna, Katherine Mansfield, Marilyn Monroe, Dorothy Parker, Dolly Parton, Joan Rivers, Bessie Smith, Margaret Thatcher, Edith Wharton, Oprah Winfrey, and many more. Nothing and no one escapes these women’s glare: women on women, women on men and other animals, and a huge range of other subjects, from birth to burial, romance to revenge, and money to mortality. The whole proves that when it comes to cutting remarks, the female of the species is indeed deadlier than the male.
