Description

Denotes that access is restricted to persons of the female sex or gender. This is an access tag following the same rules as those described in access=*, though the presence of this tag with a yes value necessarily implies a no for all other gender-based access tags.

Usage

Use this tag in combination with other tags, most frequently in combination with amenity=toilets.

amenity=toilets
female=yes

It's probably best to express this type of access as female=yes and let the implications take care of other sexes/genders since the number is not guaranteed to be exactly two across all cultures. It's also faster to tag in this way.

Implications

A value other than no implies no for all other gender-based access tags, but this can be overridden by adding more access role tags. In case of conflict, resolve in favour of more access.

Possible tagging mistakes

If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag.
