    I'm a male, but I understand and respect some basic concepts of feminism. Seriously, I do. IMO, any other title than "Darth" (for a female sith) would denote a lesser power or significance, or something (you know what I mean). Therefore, I think "Darth" should be appropriate for female sith. I think the term "Darth" has the connotations of "Dark Side" and "Evil" and "fear-inspiring," etc. Women can be just as 'dark-sided' and 'evil' and 'fear-inspiring,' 'etc' as males. Furthermore (i love saying that), "Darth" is a description of association to the dark side of the force, so just as female jedi are called "jedi," female sith should be called "darth."

    Ok I'll stop typing now. :)

    I'm sure Darth means Dark in some language...

    Anyway, every Sith in the movies is called 'Darth' so if Ep3 has a Sith Lady she will be called 'Darth' something...

    Could someone who is into EU please enlighten us if there has ever been a Dark Lady and if so, what was her title?

    This was something I baffled over for quite a while in trying to come up with my screen name. :D The only precedent for a female Sith is Lumiya from the original series of Marvel Star Wars comics. She is referred to as "Darth Lumiya" in a few places, most notably in her bio on the OS, but she seems to be called "Lady Lumiya" most of the rest of the time.

    Her name is Darth Lumiya, and her original name was Shira Brie.

    I posted this on the Ep3 non spoilers also i think :p
    In the Art Of Star Wars book that comes with the Special Edition EP 1 Widescreen..... It shows concept drawings of the sith in Ep 1.
    And george asked McCaig to draw him his "worst nightmare" the....SITH WITCHand it was so terrifying that george asked McCaig to backdown and draw his Second Worst nightmare... :p hehe~
    Sooooooo........ Sith Witch is the right way to call a women/lady sith..
    But about the Darth.... i dont know... depends on how Lucas see's the word.... either as like a Mr. only men get Mr and women get Ms, Mrs.. it all depends on that

    The New Essential Guide to Characters has an entry on Darth Bane, the guy who reincarnated the Sith 1,000 years before the Rebellion. "Darth", it seems, was his actual first name. When he went into hiding and established the two-Sith guideline, he also established a line that would give the name "Darth" to all future Sith Lords.

    Thus I daresay that a Sith Lady would also be called Darth, since there obviously isn't another Lord or Lady out there. I'm not sure she would take kindly to being called something like "Darthie-girl," however (Mar). ;)

    It would look so much more feminine if you added an "e" to it:

    Darthe Wanda

    If she's from Naboo, she could even be Darthé.

    Nothing's as good as "donker," though.

    "Do you find something . . . wisible about my good fweind . . . Donker Vader?!"

    I think Darth would be the correct term for female Lords of the Sith, too.

    I always thought of Sith Witch as more of an insult than a proper term, but that's just me.
