Femme is a feminine gender role which is sometimes used as a gender identity. The term femme originated in communities of lesbian and bi women, in which stereotypically feminine femmes typically partnered with more masculine butches. Because of this, femmes are often assumed to be sexually attracted to butches and/or masculine women, although this is not always the case.

Femme was originally used by those assigned female at birth, but has been increasingly adopted by trans women and others in the transgender community.

Those who identify as femme may have the gender identity of woman and have a strongly feminine gender expression, or they may use femme as a non-binary gender identity aligned with femininity.
