Another Tyobrien-style riddle:

With three, I cross a river.
With four, I am a man.
With all five, I am a woman.

Hint:

I didn't say which order I'm adding the letters in.

    $\begingroup$ We have Alconja Puzzles; Riley Riddles; and (excluding some more I am probably unaware of) now we have Tyobrien Riddles, too? :D $\endgroup$
