Tomboy: The Surprising History & Future of Girls Who Dare to be Different

February 5, 2022

What do you think of when you hear the word Tomboy? Does it bring back memories of you playing football with the boys and preferring blue jeans to princess dresses? Or would it feel like an insult if someone said it about you, as a young girl, or your daughter or granddaughter? Lisa Selin Davis, author of the new book, TOMBOY, sheds light on how the word's meaning has changed dramatically through history and why it’s changing meaning is directly related to today's complex and often conflicting conversations and beliefs about gender and gender identity.
