The Tomboy Trope, Explained



The Tomboy. She loves traditionally masculine activities and would rather wear baggy clothes instead of dresses or skirts. Confident with the tendency to be headstrong or impulsive, she doesn’t cave to the pressure to conform, which has made her a strong role model for women and girls who feel like they don’t fit in. But is our culture outgrowing this character? In this video, we unpack the Tomboy in film and TV and why this trope might soon become irrelevant today.
