    women celebrities
    She is also author of the book Exactly As I Am, which chronicles the stories of normal young girls alongside prominent women celebrities who share their own past struggles with confidence and self-esteem.

    Isn't "female celebrities" correct?

    Re: women celebrities

    It is a rather strange one though, as I don't think we would use "men celebrities" so it makes little sense to way "women celebrities". It is, however, used quite a lot.

    You will also see "women police officers" as opposed to "female police officers" or "policewomen".
