    Cool 20-plus women

    May "20-plus women" mean women in their twenties?

    Thanks

    Without context, yes, it could. It could also mean women who are over size 20

    Context is on character-type for modern slasher-horror movies. Subject is about a movie pioneering on "young women suffering terrible attacks by a psycho-killer," and paragraph is as follows:

    "The movie also invented the young-women-in-peril template that continued through countless Friday the 13ths and Halloweens _ and the made-in Vancouver Final Destination series from director Morgan and his writing-producing partner James Wong. Seems there's no end of teenaged and 20-plus women who want to see themselves threatened onscreen."


    I'll be very grateful for your help

    Yes, in this context, 20-plus women means women who are at least 20 years old.

    If you were referring to a dress size you could have a 20-plus size I suppose.
