Flexi Says: The pelvic girdle attaches the legs to the trunk of the body and also provides a basin to contain and support the organs of the abdomen. It is connected to the vertebral column of the axial skeleton by ligaments. The pelvic girdle consists of two halves — one half for each leg — but the halves are fused with each other in adults at a joint called the pubic symphysis. The female pelvic girdle has a round inlet and is larger and wider than males. The male pelvic girdle looks taller and narrower than the female's.
