"I was a different sort of child myself, more anxious, more self-critical. I could climb a tree all right, but I found it hard to get down again. I hated netball and hockey, and was never any good at judo. Still, I knew myself to be a tomboy, with my longing for dungarees and close-cropped hair, and my determination never to get married. The word 'tomboy' itself seemed magical to me: fiery, disobedient, gloriously untidy. 'Girl,' by comparison, was flat and uninspiring.

– Christian McEwen, Jo's Girls: Tomboy Tales of High Adventure, True Grit, and Real Life
