Why وَلِيجَةً is feminine?

Words which end in a "ta' marbutah" are grammatically feminine. As to why the word ends in a "ta' marbutah" when obviously it can refer to a man as well as to a woman, there is no explanation -- except to say that this has been the usage among the Arabs. Allah knows best.
