‘Essex lady’ expression to be faraway from dictionary


he phrase ‘Essex Woman’ with its associations with  stilettos, dyed blonde hair and wild nights out is to be faraway from the dictionary.

Oxford College Press will take the expression out following a marketing campaign by the Esintercourse Women’ Liberation Entrance  which has had backing from Essex born ladies together with Dame Helen Mirren.

The group had been riled  by the entry within the Oxford Superior Learner’s Dictionary for ‘Essex lady’: ‘A reputation used particularly in jokes to seek advice from a kind of younger lady who isn’t clever, attire badly, talks in a loud and ugly approach and may be very prepared to have intercourse.’

Creator Syd Moore, who based the group, mentioned: “Girls from the Congo had heard of the Essex lady. I believed: It is time to do away with this as soon as and for all.”

Her challenge was backed by one other marketing campaign group, Snapping the Stiletto, which was devoted to stopping ladies being degraded. 

The group’s intention is to unfold the message that the ‘Essex lady’ picture doesn’t signify all ladies from the county.  

Actuality TV star Gemma Collins, who appeared in The Solely Approach is Essex Essex, has criticised the usage of the time period in  the dictionary and branded it ‘derogatory’. 

Dame Helen Mirren, from Southend-on-Sea, and Penny Lancaster, from Chelsmford each donated sneakers to a present organised by the group to point out their help.

The time period ‘Essex lady’ was coined to match the definition of the ‘Essex man’ coined by the political journalist Simon Heffer who hailed from the realm.

He outlined the Essex man as “younger, industrious, mildly brutish and culturally barren.”
