Feminist attorney Jo Freeman authored the 

“Bitch manifesto” in 1968:

 

"A bitch takes shit from no one. You may not like her, but you cannot ignore her….[Bitches] have loud voices and often use them. Bitches are not pretty….Bitches seek their identity strictly through themselves and what they do. They are subjects, not objects… Often they do dominate other people when roles are not available to them which more creatively sublimate their energies and utilize their capabilities. More often they are accused of domineering when doing what would be considered natural by a man."

DEFINITION of “BITCH”  by WIKIPEDIA:

 

Bitch, literally meaning a female dog, is a slang pejorative for a person, commonly a woman, who is belligerent, unreasonable, malicious, a control freak, rudely intrusive or aggressive. When applied to a man, bitch is a derogatory term for a subordinate.

 

Its original use as a vulgarism, documented to the fourteenth century, suggested high sexual desire in a woman, comparable to a dog in heat. The range of meanings has expanded in modern usage. In a feminist context, it can indicate a strong or assertive woman.

   

In modern usage the slang term bitch has different meanings depending largely on social context and may vary from very offensive to endearing. The term can refer to a person or thing that is very difficult, as in “Life’s a bitch”. By 1974, Elton John had a hit single with “The Bitch Is Back“. Generally, the term is still considered offensive, and not accepted in formal situations.
