English term or phrase: Educated women
In the context of women who have received an education, I'm reluctant to use 'educadas' as to me that implies more 'well mannered' and I don't think 'cultas' is right either.

Also - 'women's education' - 'ensañanza de mujeres'?

Many thanks!

neutral  Refugio: This is all right as far as it goes, but it leaves out the autodidacts (self-educated through reading) -- probably a significant proportion of educated women
