I'm willing to go either way with this issue as I believe that the shooting sports is one of a very few endeavours where gender makes no difference most of the time. The exception to that may be in open or CCW. IMHO it's easier to teach women as they are more receptive and don't carry on with the "macho" bit or "movie training" that they have after watching a flick or the TV.
Actually I like hearing the women's point of view. They usually bring up things that I wouldn't have thought of.
