OK, a couple of other thoughts regarding women in AA. This is entirely my own opinion.
Everybody who goes into AA has some history, if you haven't been through a lot you don't need a 12 step program to get out of a mess. This is equally true of the women. So most of them have been through some seriously not nice things and know how the world works. They don't need a video warning to know that there are some unpleasant men in the world. And a good number of the women I know in AA would have no trouble holding up their end of a fight in a biker bar, and a few of them have. A guy trying to rape one of those gals would quickly find himself on the wrong side of a beat down. And if she can't do it, there will be no shortage of men around who would do it for her.
