feminists
Explanation:
The only reference I can find which would appear to bear any relation to the context would be the following:

Deborah Horowitz - An Aesthetic of Permeability: Three Transcapes ...
... The first group (the "blanchers") includes feminists Maud Ellmann and Gayle
... Duchess," in Feminist Approaches to the Body in Medieval Literature, ed. ...
muse.jhu.edu/journals/chaucer_ review/v039/39.3horowitz.html - Similar pages

...which would seem to suggest that in some quarters "feminists" are referred to as "blanchers" - this would fit the context perfectly if only I knew what the term refers to exactly :-)
