In a short video clip promoting their new book, “The Book of Gusty Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience,” Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Rodham Clinton explained what they believed defined a “gusty” woman. While the tweet was liked more than 33,000 times, there are a number of comments criticizing their message, including one from Juanita Broaddrick.
“Give me a damn break, Hilly,” she tweeted in response. “You wouldn’t know gutsy if it kicked you in the A$$. You’ve been shielded and protected all your life. Be assured, I will never give up telling the world about you and your rapist husband. I’m still here.”

In the video, Chelsea said she believed gusty meant “having a clear sense of purpose and then having the perseverance and just the refusal to give up.”
Hillary, meanwhile, argued that gutsy women were those “who faced obstacles and kept going and they could see what a difference it might make in their own lives and even more broadly.”
She continued: “We’re in favor of people who are gusty not only because they want to achieve something but because they want to pave the way for others who are going to come behind.”

What does it mean to be a gutsy woman?
It's about never giving up—and working to pave the way for the next generation:https://t.co/DOhSrVq9SC pic.twitter.com/DK5CpTh8F0
Broaddrick has a book of her own. It's called "You Better Put Some Ice on That: How I Survived Being Raped By Bill Clinton."
Seems pretty gutsy of her to come forward with that story.
