It's called a relative clause. It is also called an adjective clause because it modifies the noun, "girl."

first it is a dependent clause, since it cannot stand by itself. it is also a relative clause, since Relative clauses are dependent clauses introduced by a Relative Pronoun (that, which, whichever, who, whoever, whom, whomever, whose, and of which). it is also restrictive, as A nonrestrictive clause is not essential to the meaning of the sentence; it can be removed from the sentence without changing its basic meaning.
If you need further help, type in "clauses" into google search and click on the first search you see.
