Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Historically, tomboys have been defined by their less feminine style of dress including the wearing of boys' clothes, as well as being more involved in physical activity than other girls. They have also been noted to demonstrate a stronger interest in science and technology. In recent times, as the ubiquity of traditionally female clothing such as dresses, blouses, and skirts has declined among Western females, the distinction has become more and more one of behavior. A general increase in the popularity of women's sporting events (see Title IX) and other activities that were traditionally male-dominated is today broadening tolerance and lessening the impact of 'tomboy' as a pejorative term.show more
