Nainen can be also translated with lady

Yeaaah, I guess. Did you report it using the flag?

(Then there's also the Finnish equivalent leidi, which I wouldn't use as widely as the English lady.)

Does anyone else have the problem of this answer not being accepted?

maybe it is because of womAn? But usually they accept one mistake.

How do you differentiate between a single old russian woman and a generalisation of old russian women?
