I prefer Chairwoman as well

>Dictator => Dictatress, Dictatrix, or ?female:Dictator.


Dictatrix would be OK for Classical nations, but for modern ones I would prefer ?female:Dictator

>Usually Stadtholder => Stadtholdress, but tyrolian has "Stadholdress" (just a typo?)


That's a typo

Also Fulani accidentally has ?female:Calipha for Republic instead of ?female:Vizier

While going through leader names for bug #19870, I catalogued some inconsistencies in the female forms of leader names.

This doesn't list every instance where female != male; I assume some are deliberate. These are just the most jarring examples (some of which I've noticed before).

  • In nations with a Chairman, the female equivalent is often Chairwoman but sometimes Chairperson. I much prefer Chairwoman.
  • Dictator => Dictatress, Dictatrix, or ?female:Dictator.
  • Usually Sheikh => Shaykha, but Palestinian has "?female:Sheikh %s".
  • Usually Stadtholder => Stadtholdress, but tyrolian has "Stadholdress" (just a typo?)
