If I'm saying "well done" to a woman is it "brava"? Or is it always
"bravo" no matter what the gender?

Ciao Cody,

"bravo" and "brava" are adjectives.
They change accordingly with the gender and number.

For example:

bravo = in front of singular masculine noun
Ex. Roberto è un bravo ragazzo

brava = in front of  singular feminine noun
Ex. Maria è una brava ragazza

bravi = in front of plural masculine nouns
Ex. Roberto e Alex sono bravi ragazzi

brave =in front of plural feminine nouns
Ex. Maria e Francesca sono brave ragazze

I hope this helps.
bravo or brava
