The symbol here is an adjective, Female, with the noun (human), that is,

女人(woman) (female) + (human)

(Please check the human symbol in Lesson 06)

The next 2-character word is 女兒, daughter.

女兒(daughter) (female) + (child)
(note: this is the traditional character )

Here is the simplified character ,
女ㄦ(daughter) (female) + (child)

( and in Lesson 07)

The other 2-character word, 女友, girlfriend.

女友(girlfriend) (female) + (friend)

The 2-character word 男女, men and women, the general term.

男女(men and women)  (man) + (female)

4-character slang 男男女女, all kind of men and women
