This is so inconsistent. On a previous exercise about a female writer there was an insistence on showing understanding the gender of the person.

I cannot hear the "ha" with the audio.

I agree with the comments below. I believe if I hadn't included "female" I would have been wrong too!

Is "dottore" used in Italian to refer to an academic doctor (as English speakers would use it for someone with a PhD, although generally only in a title)? Also, is "dottore" used for a professional who does not have either the medical or academic title of "doctor?" (I'm thinking of its use in the film Il Conformista, when someone addresses someone else of a higher class as "dottore.")

If so, do those conventions transfer to women?
