It applies to any fight and while women do get into physical fights, it's not remotely as often as men....because the men tend to feel they have something to prove. So walking away is the opposite of what they are geared to do....seems unmasculine.
But it would save them a whole lot of heartache and opportunities in life if they learned it earlier...or ever....that walking away can save you jail time, tons of legal $$$, and from a felony record that keeps you out of college or from the better jobs.
Like I said...IMO it's better to be smart than right.

I was taught not to hit girls, but even as a small child I understood that if a girl hits me first, she is no longer a girl and she gets hit.
Since women's lib, there have been more girlillas that think it is OK to strike other people.
If they thought they would get hit back, a lot of them wouldn't do that.
