Alright, kids! Are you ready for the word of the day? Say it with me: "Muliebrity" (myoo-lee-EB-ri-tee, noun). defines it as "The state of being a woman." Intriguing, no? But the following example of the word in action is even more so:

"She was one of those women who was waiting in--what is the word?--muliebrity; she had courage and initiative and a philosophical way of handling questions, and she could be bored by regular work like a man." --H.G. Wells, The New Machiavelli

What does "muliebrity" mean to you? Define it in one sentence by commenting on this posting.
