: Hi, I have a question.

: When someone says, "Those books are for women with attitude to spare", what does she mean? What kind of women are they?

: Thank you in advance

When someone has something "to spare" it means they have more of it than they need. "Attitude" in this sense means swagger, confident defiance, and/or cockiness.
