SLAPP stands for Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation and is a silencing tactic which is sometimes used against women/feminists to prevent them from, or punish them for, drawing attention to sexism, harassment, or similar issues.

The term "SLAPP" is most commonly used with regard to environmental activism (eg. when activists publicise a that a company is polluting) but the same tactic is often used when people publicise harassment or sexual assault.
