Let's take any random dictionary definition :

The advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.
or another :

the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way, or the set of activities intended to achieve this state:
Neither of these definitions requires the inclusion of transwomen in the "women" group.

I can't think of a definition of feminism that isn't ad hoc and that would imply the acceptance of transwomen.
