I understand the motivation to create a "safe space" for women, but
please let's not do this. "Separate but equal" has never been shown to
make progress toward equality, and I doubt this situation would be any
different. I believe it would instead make things worse, by
balkanizing the community rather than encouraging good behavior within
a unified group. In other words, the solution will never be reached
without active participation by men.
