When was the last time you heard someone say “Lady Lawyer”?

The Baltimore Sun has a blog entry titled “Female Trouble” by the assistant managing editor for the copy desk about the outdated use of placing the word female/women/lady before her occupation or title when it is unnecessary to specify gender.

Interesting.  Although with that title, I thought it was about something else entirely. Ha!
