Merriam-Webster Called Out For Sexism

The power of social media has taken another win! Cosmopolitan reports that one writer recently called out sexism found in the dictionary and many took to twitter to tag Merriam-Webster.

Ali Segel was sent a screenshot of the definition of femininity while working on a project after the election results. The writer was shocked to find out how normal it was made to seem and noted the crazy double standard, “Can you imagine: ‘He managed to become a CEO without sacrificing his masculinity.'”

Merriam-Webster spoke out and agreed – removing the sentence altogether.
