I see a different problem with using “women” (ORwoman”) as an adjective referring to a group of (nouns) who happen to be female; women surgeons, women athletes, etc. My complaint with this linguistic configuration is that it assumes that the unmodified noun (writer, lawyer, philatelist, etc.), is male, the same way that “male nurse” implies that any other kind of nurse is female. I’d opt for a little less clarity and a slightly wider acceptance of gender roles, thank you.
