The definition of “woman” in the Cambridge Dictionary has been updated to include anyone who “identifies as female,” regardless of biological gender. A new definition of “woman” has been added to the online dictionary that also includes transgender people, according to the Telegraph.

A Woman Is now defined as “an adult who lives and identifies as female despite having been said to have a different sex at birth,” according to the new Cambridge Dictionary definition.

The revised definition was also supported by “an adult who lives and identifies as female despite having been said to have a different sex at birth,” according to the new Cambridge Dictionary definition.

A spokesperson for the Cambridge Dictionary said to the Telegraph, “Our editors made this addition to the entry for women in October. They carefully studied usage patterns of the word woman and concluded that this definition is one that learners of English should be aware of to support their understanding of how the language is used. The first definition at the entry for woman remains unchanged and continues to be ‘an adult female human being'”.
