Roseanne on What Society Thinks of Women

Roseanne is taking her show on the road and is performing stand-up in London this week. She spoke with the Guardian. She's as awesomely angry and as outspoken as ever.

She believes that society wants women "on anti-depressants so they are no longer creative or fierce". Has she taken anti-depressants? "Oh, hell yeah. There isn't anything that I haven't done. They dull your rage. People don't like angry women so they say, 'We're going to have to drug that bitch to get her to shut up. We will humiliate her and disenfranchise her, but first she has to shut up.' Oh yeah, I did those anti-depressants the last time I was famous. I needed to dull the horror of it."
