Content capturing different aspects of girlhood has recently been trending on TikTok, such as girl dinner, lazy girl jobs, and girl math - and now the latest one to become popular is the girl hammer trend.

"Girl hammer" is when a girl needs to use a hammer for a task but doesn't have one so she uses a different object as a substitute, such as a shoe, a hairbrush, a candle, or a book.

Anything strong enough to whack something into place, basically.

TikToker Madtod (@madtod) first used the term in a TikTok where she wrote: "Everyone's talking about girl dinner but nobody is talking about girl hammers," as she showed her pink hairbrush, a candle to secure hangings.

One person said: "Candle, Bluetooth speaker, random wooden box, heavy book, empty pot ANYTHING I CAN FIND."

"The hydro flask will do it every time," another person wrote.

A third added: "Heavy? handheld? hammer!"

"Me and the white direct TV remote were besties when I was younger. homegirl was a BRICK," a fourth person commented.

Someone else replied: "I grew up with a single mom and we use high heels. I was 12 when I found out what a hammer was."
