Are you asking this question from the perspective of biology, or sociology? I ask because biologically, the changes are pretty clear. For example, girls develop breasts, they start having periods along with other physical changes. However, from a sociological perspective, you'll see that objectification can become far more prominent as girls get older. In societies that are very patriarchal, women can go through certain experiences that male counterparts may not face. For example, when you hear the experiences of women walking alone vs men working alone. Or, for example, at a night out. Even though a man and woman can go to the same place, the experiences can be entirely different.
