Girl and women are two words to describe females. A girl is a word used to describe a female that is younger in age. It is even used to describe a gender before a child is born. When a doctor determines the gender of a fetus, they indicate it is a girl.

The word woman is used to describe a female that is older in age. Many may use to describe a female in their teenage years, but most use woman to describe a female that is over 18 years old. The word woman is also used to describe a female with life experience

One thing that you may know about girls and women is they are both females. You will use the term “girl” when you are describing someone who is still very young. A woman is a female who has already reached adulthood.

There are instances when people would use the term “girl” in order to describe someone who is already an adult but still acts like she is still young. It may be used to refer to someone who has never tried to grow up or act like an adult because of different reasons.

There are also times when the term “woman” can be used as a compliment to someone who may have done a lot of things that other people have not done in their age.

A Girl and a Woman are both terms that we can use to describe a female human. They are of the same gender, the main difference between this two is, that a woman is a developed or grown version of a girl.

The word girl has been around since the 11th century, which comes from the Anglo- Saxon word “gerle” or “gerela” which means dress, while a woman comes from an Old English word ‘wifman” which was derived from “wif” (female, wife) and “man” (human being).

A woman is an adult that is allowed to make decisions by herself and takes responsibility for those actions while a girl depends on her parents or guardians to make decisions for them.

A woman is a girl that has grown based on the experience she had and things she had to learn and relearn, building her confidence, knowing her strength and weakness.
