I've long been a fan of reclaiming the word Spinster...
In Middle English it was simply a word used to describe a woman whose profession was spinning yarn.
During the late Middle Ages, married tradeswomen had an easier time obtaining higher-status, higher-income work than their unmarried peers. Unmarried women ended up with lower-status, lower-income jobs like combing, carding, and spinning wool—hence "spinster."
By the 17th century the usage had shifted to be a term in legal documents describing an unmarried woman.
It certainly beats describing yourself as a spinner and people presuming you're an exercise fanatic and go to spinning classes at the gym!
Anyway, this badge proudly proclaims you to be a Spinster, in the style of the old school Prefect badges.
