A tomboy is a girl who exhibits characteristics or behaviors considered typical of the gender role of a boy,including the wearing of typically masculine-oriented clothes and engaging in games and activities that are often physical in nature, and which are considered in many cultures to be the domain of boys.

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 and other activities that were traditionally male-dominated is today broadening tolerance and lessening the impact of 'tomboy' as a term.
