Top definition
A brand of feminism centered around the ideals and struggles of primarily white women. While not outright exclusive, its failure to consider other women and its preoccupation with Western standards and the problems faced by the "average woman" is often alienating to women of color, non-straight women, trans women, and women belonging to religious or cultural minorities.
"Muslim women shouldn't be allowed to wear hijabs or burqas because they are oppressive."
"That sounds like white feminism. Many Muslim women wear them of their own free will."
