The symbol biologists use for female organisms

A Female is an organism that belongs to the sex that produces ova ("egg" cells) for sexual reproduction. Females of some species also bear offspring.[1]

Organisms can either be grouped as male or female. Female humans are called women and their bodies are different from male humans (who are called men).
