    Quoted from Pinballwife4life:

    I don't understand why some women feel that they need to be separate... Personally I don't get it... I would be more offended by not being able to play with the "men" and being sectioned off to the "women's".

    The women divisions at these events are typically setup to offer an opportunity to ENCOURAGE more women participation in the event.. not to necessarily force them to compete separate. They compete in the open divisions too. The women's division just gives a less crowded division to encourage women to participate by giving them a division they may feel they have a greater chance to succeed in. It's just extra sweetner... not a replacement.

    Quoted from UNCgump:

    To both of the above most recent comments, those dynamics could be addressed with a division for newcomers, irrespective of gender.

    Not when the objective is to make it more welcoming to women specifically
