ASU professor cited in article “How Do Girls Become Tomboys?”


Dating back to the mid-16th century, the term “tomboy” has undergone changes in both gender and definition. This fascinating topic has academics and tomboys themselves arguing about what constitutes this identity.

Carol Martin, from Arizona State University’s T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics, was recently cited in the article, “How Do Girls Become Tomboys?”, published by Fatherly. Martin reflects on her past interview of girls ages 7-12 and their part-time pursuit of being tomboys. Rendering of girl playing hockey in the driveway of a house.
