Woman challenges definition of 'feminine' on Thesaurus.com

Thesaurus.com has said it will review its entry for "feminine" after a woman complained about its "comical" synonyms for the word.

Kaya Day was so disappointed with the limited selection that she wrote a letter of complaint.

She says she's trying to get different words added so that language can catch up with social consciousness about gender.
