I would but a greater emphasis on field striping, taking the gun down and putting it back together. Our society doesn't encourage women to mess with machines, that's a mistake. demystifying the gun as a machine instills confidence. That's true of both men and women.

Scorch points out that people aren't used to the suddenness of violence or its practical application.
Women's self defense classes now use an instructor dressed in heavy padding so that women can learn how it feels to use full force on an opponent. Previously many highly trained women were still unable to defend themselves because the weren't for whatever reason using full force against their attackers.
Again this is true of men as well as women. It's just the problem was more evident with women.
How you apply the same lesson to firearms training is above my pay grade. It should be something to consider.
