Gentlewoman or Young Lady?

Published January 13, 2021 by Nan Mykel

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi today introduced female congresswomen as “Gentlewoman.” There was a nice-appearing man who seemed to prefer introducing them as “Young Ladies,” regardless of aparent age. I didn’t hear him introduce any male congressmen as “young gentleman,” however, regardless of apparent age.

I wonder why?
