You are pretty brazen for a woman who just admitted, however tacitly, that she just slept with my husband.



1. What's the meaning of "for" here?
2. Could you give me another example using "for" like that?

"For" in the context means "considering what can be expected from somebody (a woman)".

Examples:

She is tall for her age.
He is not bad for a beginner.
