Where "ad hominem" arguments refer to those consisting of replying to factual claims by attacking a characteristic or belief of the individual making the argument or claim - rather than by addressing the substance of the argument - an "ad feminem" argument would characterize the same phenomenon, but in a specifically feminist context (as in contentious debates between Women's Studies scholars).

"According to international studies cited by the Swedish Ministry of Industry, Employment, and Communications, between 65 and 90 per cent of prostituted women were sexually abused by male relatives or acquaintances as girls."
