I'm not sure I understand the question. There is a word in French, "émancipée", which is the feminine form of a predicate adjective, "liberated" or "emancipated" in English: une fille émancipée (a liberated girl).

The word is also used, in both French and English, as a noun, meaning a liberated woman, someone who ignores current cultural dictates:

"Lydia Lensky, married to the young doctor, became with him a patriot and an emancipee." [from D. H. Lawrence's book, The Rainbow]
