    Female (also known as Woman, Lady, Chick, Gal, Dudette, or Girl (diminutive)) is a gender which is part of the Western gender binary. It is often associated with femininity and a connection to girlhood or femininity (as defined in one's society). It includes cisgender, transgender, genderqueer and non-binary women. Some non-binary individuals also may have a partial connection to being a woman or femininity, in which case they may identify as a non-binary woman, woman-aligned, feingender, and/or fiaspec.

    Woman is a term used for adults, while girl is used for children and teenagers. Gal is used as a casual word for women, typically younger women. Female is also sometimes used as a synonym for woman, however "female" can also be used to denote sexual traits, so typically considered overly clinical for most cases. "Female" can sometimes be used to exclude transfeminine people or reduce women to their genitalia. The word wifgender was created to encompass all the various words for womanhood.

    individuals who are assigned female at birth (AFAB) are often raised with the expectation that they will identify as women, although not all AFAB individuals are women and not all women are AFAB. Identifying as a woman is often associated with a feminine gender expression and gender role, however not all women present femininely, and not all individuals who present femininely are women.


    The astronomical symbol for Venus (♀) is the most commonly known symbol for females. It represents the hand mirror of the Roman goddess of love, or possibly a distaff or necklace. It is also the alchemical symbol for copper.

Light pink represents those who identify partially as women (demigirls, etc.) White represents multigender individuals who have female as one of their genders.
