I'm stuck on the last clue of a cryptic crossword. The clue is:
A non-PC American woman overseas? (6)
The cross letters are A_R_A_, confirmed by "check answers."

As I was typing this up, I figured it out:
[A] [non-PC American woman = broad] [overseas = abroad]
I'm not quite sure if "American" is there for a particular reason besides just being filler. Is "broad" really restricted to American women?
