girlcott
n. A boycott that includes only female participants.

Example Citation:
"Yet the women—equal partners with the men in providing the product—receive only 63 per cent as much prizemoney as the men. That is a lower percentage than at any other grand-slam event. The difference . . . is generating adverse reactions among increasing numbers of fans and commentators and it has led many of the players to consider a 'girlcott' of Wimbledon."
—Billie Jean King, "Why women deserve equal pay," The Times (London)
