An article in the Daily Telegraph came up with 14 words used to describe only, or mainly, women. Commentators on the article have come up with more words. Even if the dictionary definition does not specifically refer to just one gender, the examples that the dictionary comes up with often do.
The words include feisty (which I have blogged on before - here), bossy, abrasive, bitchy, ditsy, airhead, frumpy, sassy and high-maintenance. Most of those words, you will have noticed, are negative, or used in a negative or critical sense. One more positive word used to describe a lively pleasant personality is bubby. Men can have lively pleasant personalities, too, but are rarely described as bubbly.
Here's the full article.
