Grumpy Woman As requested by some rather grumpy women, this week The Brain Bath?! salutes grumpy heroines.

So, what makes you women out there grumpy? The females from The Brain Bath?! team got their heads together and this is what they came up with:-

Men, the youth of today, snotty shop assistants, PMT uncomfortable shoes, housework, domestic godessess, childbirth, supermarket shopping, unequal opportunities, stereotypes, leaving the loo seat up, the menapause and endless sport on TV.

Care to share your inner grump with the rest of the community? Here is a list of our grumpy heroines.

Top 10 grumpy heroines
