Top definition
A fertile woman brought into a household where the wife is unable to conceive.
She will then help with odd jobs around the house, but will also be subject to sexual relations with the man/husband of the household in order to try and bear them a child.
She's a handmaid, she's got an amazing tale to tell.

Look at that handmaiden, she seems like she would be able to provide men with a child.

A women who serves the patriarchy; i.e. Cool Girl. Handmaidens either defend, support or claim to love pornography, pedophilia, rape, incest, BDSM, surrogacy, egg donation, transgenderism and prostitution etc. They often deflect arguments against feminists with "but but but... women to it tooooooo". Many handmaidens claim to be (liberal) feminists and will attempt to euphemize and appropriate women's subjugation by rebranding it "empowering" or "feminist", such as "feminist porn" or "sex work empowurrs me rawrz". Supporting the trans lobby, the porn industry is a handmaiden's cause.
This thread is full of libfem handmaidens.

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.
