Difference between "Women" and "Females" categories[edit]

There are many categories starting with "Women" overlapping with, and often subcategories of, categories starting with "Female". What is the difference? That Female categories also include girls? Or female animals? Same question for "Men..." and "Male..." categories. Longhairadmirer (talk) 22:47, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

I don't see a difference ether, and think they should be merged. However, that is just my opinion. ARTEST4ECHO (talk) 21:55, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
After doing some move digging, I think that the difference that the original creators was looking for was "Female" include female children, however, I may be wrong. It's still a bit confusing. There need to be some clarification.
Sometimes I get the impression that "women..." sub-categories might include nudity or models that are known for nudity, which is not okay in the "female..." categories. Am I wrong? Longhairadmirer (talk) 16:48, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Defining ages[edit]

The way this Category is set up and the "by age" subcategories are set up, the ages are getting confuses. We can easily find an image of a 16 year old categories right next to an image of a 30+ year old in a “Young Women” catagory.

As such, I am proposing that the following category renamings and an age definition. I am using, but slightly modifying, the Physical stages of human life section found on the en:Human development (biology) wikipedia page.


1. Girls (birth – 13 (puberty))
2. Adolescent girls (13 - 18 years) instead of "Young Women"
3. Women (or perhaps Adult Women) (19 - 59 years)
4. Old women (60+ years)

This will also match how w:Category:Images of young people as "Young people" falls into w:Category:Childhood and w:Category:Adolescence

Obvously this can be modified with input from other editor. My logic on using 19 is that some images that (such as nude images) need to be denoted as "Adult" at 18, instead of the 19 as used in the stages of human life.

Since this is a big change, I will wait to get input for two weeks. If no one objects I will set up this scheme. If there is some objection after a consensus as to what, if anything (if I'm just way off), should be done is reached.ARTEST4ECHO (talk) 17:07, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
