Ye Olde Bedford Guide. Yar har.

gynocriticism

"A term coined by Elaine Showalter to refer to a type of feminist criticism that focuses on literary works written by women, rather than critiquing male-authored works or studying women as readers who must resist the predominantly patriarchal ideology that traditional texts reinforce."

Basically, its one of those terms that's used to build up women as authors and artists, rather than attempt to cut down men. I kind of like that theory.
