    the correct name is a feminist

    seriously though kung fu was invented by a woman for women to do, all the moves that you have to be fast and flexible to do are much harder for a man to do

    If you mean in Chinese, then in most cases it is the same for a female master as is for a male: shi-fu or shi-fu depending on how you romanize it. However, there are regional differences. In the northern regions, some use the title lao-shi (which literally means "teacher"). In the southern region such as Hong Kong, it would be lo-si. In Chinese, these titles or honorifics are gender neutral.

    If you mean in English, it is depends on how they want to be addressed. I've had women masters whom were addressed as "Madame", such as Madame Wong. In some schools, "teacher", "Ms", etc. If you are not sure, just ask.

    ShiPo would be a woman master, this also depends upon the chinese  dialect

    Well, the female equivalent of "master" would be "mistress", but that usually has a negative connotation with it, being associated with a woman who is having an extramarital affair with a married man...! 

    If you're looking for different titles, here is a link to an article that sums it up rather succinctly:
