    yelling at each other as "fish women"

    Okay another literal translation from Dutch, trying to explain what I am looking for.
    When one woman, or several women yell [at each other], we say accuse them of "yelling like women in the market who sell fish".
    Any equivalent in English [important: I search for a way to describe specifically women who yell at each other *if that exists in English].

    Thanks in advance

    Perhaps, like "fishwives" . . . screeching like fishwives.
