A more common way to say or between nouns is -(이)나 . 여자나 남자. https://www.howtostudykorean.com/unit-3-intermediate-korean-grammar/unit-3-lessons-51-58/lesson-58/
If the last syllable ends with a final vowel you use -나. Example as written above: 여자나 남자 (because 자 ends with the vowel ㅏ).
If it ends with a final consonant you write -이나. Example: 책이나 연필 (because 책 ends with the consonant ㄱ).
The same goes for many other endings like -(으)로 meaning by/with a. Example: 핸드폰으로 and 차로.
Note that when using -(으)로 there's an exception so you'll still only use -로 if the final consonant is ㄹ. Example: 연필로.
This is my first time explaining so I'm sorry if I made it too complex to understand. I've included links to the websites I used below.
