Lady Bountiful

(redirected from ladies bountiful)

Lady Bountiful

An exceptionally wealthy and generous woman, especially one whose generosity is (or is seen to be) a way of showing off her wealth in a patronizing manner. Primarily heard in UK, Australia. You've gotta love Lady Bountiful over there, coming down to the homeless shelter every month in her stretch limo and smiling for the cameras as she ladles out soup to the poor.
