Here's another word I had no idea existed but which must surely be fairly widely known:

muliebrity n womanhood [Origin from Latin muliebritas, -tatis, from mulier a woman] Chambers, 1998

Am I the only one drawing unpleasant connotations from its similarity to "mule"? I don't think I like this word. In fact I may have to try and forget it immediately.
