I was wondering if there is a word for a strong women, maybe that the english language does not have a translztion for. I am looking for a word that is a positive and powerfull discription of a women. Possible just the word for women or mother, maybe the word for maternal. Also, what would be the word for goddess. Thanks, it would be a great help.

Bhuel Adair,
woman = bean
womanhood = banúlacht
womanish = banda
womankind = An bhantracht OR na mná
womanlike/womanly = beanúil OR mnáúil
goddess = Bandia

But sure what would I know being a FEAR :)
Go n-éirí leat,
Colm
