The term “female” typically refers to the sex of an organism that produces eggs and typically has XX chromosomes. In most species, including humans, females are distinguished from males, who produce sperm and typically have XY chromosomes. In human reproduction, the female gamete (egg) is fertilized by the male gamete (sperm) to create offspring.

In a broader context, “female” can also be used as an adjective to describe anything characteristic of or associated with females, such as female characteristics, behaviors, or roles in society.
