  1. Femininity

    Femininity is a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles generally associated with girls and women. Femininity is socially constructed, but made up of both socially-defined and biologically-created factors. This makes it distinct from the definition of the biological female sex, as women, men, and transgender people can all exhibit feminine traits. Behavioral traits generally considered feminine include gentleness, empathy, and sensitivity, though traits associated with femininity vary depending on location and context, and include a variety of social and cultural factors. The counterpart to femininity is masculinity.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

  1. Femininity

    Female-associated sex-specific social roles and behaviors unrelated to biologic function.
