I love this word chavette. I never thought about there being a female version of a chav (which I think of as a chauvinistic male -- but not just gender chauvinistic, but racial and class and intelligence chauvinistic, if you know what I mean. "He's different! Let's pound 'im into the ground!" sort of guy). 
I grew up with several chavettes (unless, being a chavette is a strictly urban phenom). Maybe they were redneckettes.
