A woman, who is nasty, overbearing, mean, pompous, arrogant, a selfish busybody, aggressive, disagreeable, or any combination of these. A battleaxe is usually an older woman, and often somewhat unattractive. The standard dictionary definition does not address looks, but one seldom hears a beautiful woman being called a battleaxe, no matter how disagreeable she is.
I hate taking books back late to the library because that old battleaxe at the desk makes such a big deal of it.

Don't even try to enter building B without a visitor pass, the Battle Axe at the front desk won't let you in and will call security.
