A woman for all seasons

It's not a common phrase in the same way, but it's the female equivalent

While "a woman for all seasons" is probably the simplest answer because it easily switches, it's not an "accepted phrase". Though I haven't heard "a man for all seasons" in quite some time personally.

There are a few alternate phrases with similar meanings to look at.

  1. Jack-of-all-trades - It's generally believed that this term can be used for men and women, and doesn't really have a gender connection behind it, despite Jack being a man's name. This does have more negative connotations than "man for all seasons" due to the phrase "Jack-of-all-trades, master of none".
  2. Renaissance woman - again, this is a gender change from "Renaissance Man" and therefore pretty similar to the "man/woman for all seasons" problem mentioned above.
  3. You could change it slightly and say that the woman is "versatile", "multi-talented", "dependable" or something else that doesn't bring in any gender at all.
