Sorry but in French girl is employed sometimes in a familiar way, maybe as "dude"or "guy" is employed for men. This is what I meant, but it sounds odd in English, I confess.
I was unsure about female, since in French, in means an "animal female"
What's more, concerning the interest of women for buddhism as a technical subject, I must say I never met any discussing the subject of the 5 aggregates, the 12 links etc (apart maybe from my wife, who I brainwashed
). I've even heard of women complaining that they'd like to talk of meditation, but as soon as they find themselves among other women they tend to speak of social relations and psychological issues. This might sound like a stereotype but it's my experience anyway. It doesn't mean this has a negative impact on their practice.
