umm.. just add the letters -ess to it ya know priestess sheppardess ext. ext.
priest ==> priestess
drone ==> queen or worker (refers to bees)
bachelor ==> bachelorette
lad ==> lass
mayor ==> mayor (I'm pretty sure female mayors are still mayors)
ram ==> ewe
gander ==> goose
manager ==> manager
shepherd ==> shepherdess
mayoress or lady mayor or mayor
manageress or manager
Priestess, bachelorette, lass. Only ones I know.
Though I think the others have no gender.
Turns out that bachelorette isn't a word.
priestess; drone is the same; bachelorette; for lad it is lass; mayor is the same; For ram, I think it is ewe?; isn't gander female? If it is not, then it is the opposite, goose; manager is the same and shepherd is the same.
At least these are true in America.
dansinger61 has it right
Female versions of the following words are as follows:
priest = priestess
drone= there is no female form. The drone relates only to the male bee used to fertilize the Queen bee. The female bees are called worker bees.
bachelor= in today's lingo we call an unmarried woman a bachelorette, but, in the past they were called spinsters.
lad = lass
mayor = today we use the male form for both the female & male title. In the past, the female version was mayoress.
ram = ewe
gander = goose
manager = we use this form for both sexes.no distinction.
shepherd = shepherdess
priest -- priestess
Drone -- Queen
Bachelor -- Bachelorett
Lad -- Lass
Ram -- Ewe
Gander -- Goose
Manager -- Manageress
Shepherd -- Shepherdess
i think 'mayor' is gender non-specific
priestess, queen/worker, bachelorette, lass, mayor, ewe, goose, manager, shepherd
