Is there a single word conjuring up the image of an intelligent woman? I am not looking for a gendered form such as "sagess", "luminaress", etc.
Whereas there are words specifically describing women such as "termagant", "virago", and "tart", I'd like a noun that describes a woman as intelligent.
I am also open to an allusion, like the way "Amazon" alludes to a strong woman. An example of this is "Athena", but it doesn't sound as natural to me as "Amazon" does in describing a person.
