I think it comes down to the woman being willing to have several different carry options. By several, I mean, every option. Women have such a larger amount of outfit types than guys do. I carry 4 or 5 different ways. A woman should have, maybe 7-10 different options from pocket, thigh, belly band, IWB, OWB, ankle, shoulder rig, etc. And this costs MONEY!!!!
I do NOT suggest a purse.
