    soft?

    Can you please tell me what is the opposite word for soft?

    Let's say you are talking about a woman and you say she is soft spoken. What do you say a woman is if she is not soft especially in relationship with men?

    thanks,
    zach

    The opposite of soft spoken would be loud or outspoken. But if you're referring to a woman who is rather quiet and demure in relationships with men, the opposite would probably be described as "aggressive."

    Or maybe 'hard-nosed'?
