West country lady? (5)


I believe the answer is:


'lady' is the definition.
(I know that lady can be written as woman)

'west country' is the wordplay.
'west' becomes 'W' (abbreviation).
'country' becomes 'oman' (Oman is an example).

(Other definitions for woman that I've seen before include "Mature female" , "With 1a [NEW] a freedom fighter" , "With 1a [OLD], one's rather timid" , "person not going on stag-night" , "Lady" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail and The Telegraph.
