Neither he nor I have any experience with the .17, so we don't know if the recoil would be significantly different from the .22 or not. She can shoot a small frame .22 fairly well, so that might be the best that he can do for her. I know I would rather have a .22 than nothing, and in some cases I might prefer it over something larger.
Not everyone is cut-out for gun carrying/shooting. She just may be one of those people. She mat be better off with pepper spray or something similar.
