    A woman can be, or not, a lady.

    A lady can be nothing else than a woman.

    I know this is a joke, but the answers above have already answered the way I would.

    A woman is a general classification (that woman over there). A lady is a woman you know by association and have determined she has the qualities of a lady (Christina is truly a lady).

    All ladies are women, but....all women are not necessarily ladies. The term ladies, is usually a status classification. Ladies normally are associated as being dignified, refined & classy in their social status.

    a woman is a general term for a female adult human.

    a lady is a polite way of speaking usually indicating either respect or the quality of the persons background ,meaning that she has money and is well educated

    well every female will become an woman at the age's 18 and up. but a lady is an woman that carry's her self politely, and respect her self and others.

    personally, i'd say a woman is any grown female human, and a lady is more of an old time or southern word for a woman that the person sees as respectful.

    Generally, 'woman' is a broader category than 'lady'. By lady, people take that to mean somebody refined or of high rank.

    A woman is a function of biology. A lady is a product of good upbringing.

    All ladies are women but not all women are ladies.

    me-i'm more of a broad and have earned that title and carry it with pride. lol i can be a lady when needed in certain social settings or with certain people, am always a woman, but broad seems to fit best.
