Slut-shaming

noun compounding
The act of disgracing a woman for sexual promiscuity
 
In the recent feminist movement, much emphasis has been placed on the sexism toward females by other females. Slut-shaming is a type of female on female sexism, where a woman feels better than another because she has fewer sexual partners. The shaming can be public, via the Internet or other sources, or more private, through gossip among friends.
Etymology : compounding of “Slut” and “Shaming”; “shame” + “ing” (present participle)
