    Default social women

    Hi,

    Is there a word to describe the type of women who are so social that they could always get benefits to themselves or any organisation they work for?

    Please do let me know if this question is not clear. Thanks a lot!

    Such a woman could be called a socialite. Such people have connections to a lot of people with money and power, and like to organise charities, etc. Naturally, the 'always' in your sentence doesn't apply; if you change it to a more realistic 'usually', socialite is a good enough term. I guess men can be socialites too, but you generally don't hear of men being called this.
