Women Only Power Tool Classes? Is This for Real?

I can't figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

On the one hand, the guy wants to teach women to operate power tools--and to do a number of other construction-related tasks. But on the other hand, why must the women be separate? Does he think they will feel alienated or put on the spot if they take the classes with the men? Does he offer the same instruction on the same power tools?

I'm not going to judge this guy but I'd be interested in hearing other's opinions on this.

Should women be instructed separately? If so, why?
