A woman who is perceived by a radical feminist as supporting "the patriarchy" by her actions or opinions, regardless of the woman's actual position.

Often used as a 'get out of jail free card', labeling a woman as a handmaiden allows her position to be dismissed without further critical analysis or counteracting any arguments.
I consistently dislike what she writes as it is inevitably pro-patriarchal handmaideny nincompoopery.

I'm going to suggest she's been drinking the Handmaiden Communion Wine.

All it is to be a handmaiden is to carry out the whims of the patriarchy.

A subordinate chick who takes all her cues from the hottest girl in her clique. Sometimes a closet lesbian who often says when referencing her queen, "That's my friend!" See also: slave.
Paris Hilton's racist chavtastic ass has alot of handmaidens.
