Hi James, 

Yes you could say 'la pire' in the case of feminine nouns.

C'est la pire des choses = It's the worst of things

C'est la pire erreur jamais faite = It's the worst mistake ever made

C'est la pire décision de ma vie = It's the worst decision of my life

Hope this helps!

Many thanks. The feminine example was not demonstrated in the tutorial.
