"Dude" is the informal way to call "Man". What is the female equivalent folks?

i think it's "gal"

I see 'gal' more as the opposite of 'guy'.

For 'dude', perhaps the female would be 'chick' or 'babe'?

Interestingly, 'babe' can also be used as a term of endearment for both male and female. If anyone remembers, Sonny and Cher sang, to each other, "I got you, babe".

What about "kid"?

Hey Clive, believe it or not dudette is actually listed in dictionary.com as an entry!!!

Main Entry: dudette
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: the female version of a dude, a cool girl
Usage: slang

Personally I think the female version should be called plain 'dud' Emotion: wink unless she is a 'bombshell.'
Dude and chick?

Oh, Clive suggested that already. Never mind.
