Here is my best explanation:

'girl' is the definition.

'depend on men to support english' is the wordplay.
'depend on' becomes 'lean' (lean on).
'men' becomes 'or' (I've seen this in other clues).
'to support' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).
'lean'+'or'='leanor'
'leanor' after 'e' is 'ELEANOR'.
