Every woman deserves to hear others smother her in compliments and apt descriptions. Whether you’re a writer looking for some inspiration for a powerful female character or a significant other looking for some potent words to give your woman a bombass compliment, you’re in the right place.
I’ve listed out 140 words to describe a strong woman that will give you some serious inspiration. Strong women can be fierce in body or mind, will or wit. And powerful women are entrancing! Let’s go!
How to Describe a Strong Woman
If you’re asking a question like “What do you call a badass woman?” or “How do you praise a strong woman?”, the answer is pretty simple.
Sure, women like to be called friendly, beautiful, or sexy (in the right context, of course), but if you’re looking to describe a strong woman with POWERFUL words, you’re going to need to break out of the box and get a little creative.
Here’s the thing. Whether it’s in the boardroom or in the bedroom, women want to receive compliments and descriptions that are fitting, honest, and that, quite frankly, make them feel like the goddesses they are.

When Describing a Beautiful Woman
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and there are all kinds of beauty, especially when it comes to women.
When you’re describing women, start with the truth. If a woman is loud and boisterous to a fault, don’t describe her as a meek and mild bunny! (Unless that’s your girl’s thing.) Tell her she’s fearless and feisty, and that you revere her wild radiance!
Personally, I like the term wild woman. It shows a certain kind of defiance, but also a witchiness and attention to nature!
What if your woman brushes off compliments?
Kasia Urbaniak is one of my favorite experts on women and power. She talks about how women are raised to reflect inward. Society tells us to deflect compliments. This is part of the “Good Girl” persona.
If that’s your woman, she’s in good company. If you’re worried she’ll be overwhelmed or embarrassed at such a stunning compliment or description, the make sure you’re being vulnerable and showing honesty so that she knows you’re not just flattering her, but really being honest.
The last thing I want (or she wants) is for you to use these words to butter her up without any substance behind your words! So use these words genuinely!
