Brat & Wench

I saw in a comic story a young man yelling at a young woman.
He said she was a brat, and later a wench.
I read and think that a brat could be something as "gamine" or "chipie" or "morveuse", but what about wench ? I saw "nana" but it does not fit in this context.

    A brat is like "un gamin pourri."

    I do not have enough French vocabulary to give you a word for 'wench,' but the word implies a young woman, usually a servant, who is disrespectful or rude, and also somewhat 'loose' in her morals. It is a negative word, but it is not the worst insult in the English language.
