Time magazine apologises for including 'feminist' on list of words to ban

Time magazine has now apologised for including "feminist" in an article inviting readers to vote for a word to ban in 2015.

The magazine's editor Nancy Gibbs has posted a note at the top of the article explaining that its inclusion was regrettable.

TIME apologizes for the execution of this poll; the word ‘feminist’ should not have been included in a list of words to ban. While we meant to invite debate about some ways the word was used this year, that nuance was lost, and we regret that its inclusion has become a distraction from the important debate over equality and justice.
