Girl – child

Girl is a word which has been in English since middle English, where it meant a child of either sex, it got to English from the German word ‘gor’ which meant child too. Whilst we’re on the subject, pink used to be a colour for all children around 100 years ago and dresses were worn by all children in the same era.
