Sexism in Bridge and Women's Events

Many recent articles have outlined a disturbing trend of sexism at the bridge table. As I read comments, I see some people state the obvious i.e. this behavior is unacceptable, and others who suggest solutions to the problem. One such solution is removing women's divisions from tournaments but I also read that this view is opposed by some people. Meanwhile most agree that the name "Girl's" division in the U25 WBF tournaments is insulting and needs to be changed.

 

That all said, what should be done? (Choices have been updated)

Keep "Girls" events.
Keep "Girls" events, but change the name to "Women's" or something else. (please comment)
End all women's events.
End women's events at the junior level only.
End women's events at the adult level only.
