    lawyeress law

    Correct?

    Anwältin

    Examples/ definitions with source references
    Bishop Williamson is quoted as saying:

    "A woman can do a good imitation of handling ideas, but then she will not be thinking properly as a woman. Did this lawyeress check her hairdo before coming into court? If she did, she is a distracted lawyer. If she did not, she is one distorted woman."

    Of course "lawyeress" is not a 'proper' translation for "Anwältin" ("lawyer" or "female lawyer" is), but here it is meant in a patronising and/or ironic way.

    Stimme Carrie zu, die "lawyeress" wäre wohl eher eine "Anwalteuse" als eine Anwältin, sprich, dieser Bischof möchte mit seiner Wortwahl Frauen (insbesondere berufstätige Frauen, nehme ich an) herabsetzen.

    Netter Typ. *langsamvon1bis100zählundtiiiiefdurchatme*
