Crossword Genius

Young woman in glasses (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lass

'young woman' is the definition.
(informal term for a young woman)

'in glasses' is the wordplay.
'in' says the answer is hidden in the clue.
'LASS' is hidden within 'glasses'.

(Other definitions for lass that I've seen before include "Girl (of Richmond Hill?)" , "Sweet resident of Richmond Hill?" , "Young woman, girl" , "Scottish girl" , "Familiar form of address for female" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
