Trans woman is a term which describes someone who is both a woman and transgender/transsexual. Trans women were assigned male at birth but their gender identity is female. They may be referred to as transfeminine.

In the past, trans women were sometimes referred to as MTF (Male To Female), but this label is no longer used as it implies that trans women were originally male.

Some trans women wish to transition in order to change their sex characteristics and gender expression to become more feminine.
