According to my Collins dictionary (which is the one I use as a mouse mat) in Australia a widgie is a female larrikin or bodgie.
Unfortunately I haven't the faintest idea what either a larrikin or a bodgie is, so I suppose I'd better look them up. Hang on...
...ah, here we are: larrikin. A mischievous person or a hooligan.
And bodgie? A bodgie is an unruly or uncouth young man, especially in the 1950s. A teddy boy.
It's really rather pleasing to have a word for a female trouble-maker.
After all, why should the boys have all the fun?
Word To Use Today: widgie. This word is an altered form of bodgie, which is from bodge, to make a mess of something, from botch, to repair something badly or to spoil through clumsiness.
