Personally, I would suggest getting her a shotgun that fits her, or one that very closely fits her and you make the proper adjustments for her fit...

I would also start her out on a 20ga if she is recoil sensitive... My neighbor recently introduced his wife to shotgunning with a Remington 870 20ga and replaced the factory stock with one of those fancy Knoxx recoil-reducing stocks. It essentially has zero recoil and she loves shooting it. I'm not saying you have to go out and spend a lot of $$$, but if you want her to be a lifelong shooting partner, it would be worthwhile to spend a few hundred bucks and get her something she enjoys, or she likely won't be shooting with you much longer...

Mama ain't gonna like shooting for long with a black-n-blue shoulder...
