The complete phrase is "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". A fury is an avenging spirit that tortures people in the pursuit of justice. The meaning is that if you upset a woman (scorn in this usage means deeply insult) she will be merciless and vicious in revenge.
"Hell hath no fury FOR a woman scorned" From Dante's "Inferno"
For is an archaic translation. Meaning, in this case, "equivalent to" or "like". Somehow I thought that renaissance Itallian might be out of place here.
