Spinster: A term used to indicate an unmarried woman who was past the usual or legal age for marrying (and sometimes also considered unlikely to marry), spinster originally referred to a woman whose occupation was to spin. Several dictionaries flag it as a derogatory term. A synonymous, but more pejorative, term is Old Maid.
