I think...
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.
