    That got me curious, so I looked up the derivation of the slang term "broad", and there doesn't seem to be much agreement on its origin. It's certainly outdated; I haven't heard it in years, and decades is probably more accurate. It's a very 1930s-1950s term.

    Dame goes WAY back; I've seen references to it in seventeenth century works, and in fact it's still an honorific title bestowed by the Queen, in England.

    In terms of slang, I think broad and dame are two distinct entities. I would consider Mae West and Jean Harlow to be dames; Texas Guinan was a broad.

    Dudley Moore did exactly the same thing (looking up the definition/derivation of the term "broad") in "10" just before breaking out with "I want a broad, just like the broad who married dear old dad."

    I had never heard the term "moll" before a few years ago when I started reading up on Dillinger. " Broad" made me think of that.
