Using CM fonts only:

  \def\textordfeminine{$^{\hbox{\underbar{$\scriptstyle \rm a$}}}$}

If you can use a TS1 font, you can get a real glyph:


You might want to ensure that \ts is set according to the current font
face (bold/italic/slanted/etc.), e.g., by redefining \bf, \it, \sl,

This is how you can get a font table:

  $ tex testfont
