All Women Are Bitches is a single by the Toronto band Fifth Column.

The lyrics were written by Caroline Azar and G.B. Jones and the music was composed by Fifth Column. It was produced by Walter Sobczak at Wellesley Sound Studios in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The song was inspired by the 1977 Canadian/French horror film Cathy's Curse.

The cover featured photos from the G.B. Jones film The Yo-Yo Gang.

The song first appeared as a single released by K Records in 1992. It was the 33rd single in the K Records 'International Pop Underground ' series. It was reviewed for the UK music publication Melody Maker by Everett True and voted 'Single of the Week'. The song was also on the Fifth Column album, 36-C, released by K Records in 1994. As well, it was included on the 1993 K Records compilation, International Hip Swing.

It has been featured on the soundtracks of the films A Gun For Jennifer, directed by Todd Morris, released in 1996. The band appeared in She's Real (1997), directed by Lucy Thane, performing the song live in San Francisco, and in the documentary by Kevin Hegge, She Said Boom: The Story of Fifth Column, released in 2012, performing the song at the Kumbaya Festival in Toronto.

In 2005, "Bitchsy" was featured on the TV series Queer as Folk.
