Select races throughout the season will offer separate women's grades as part of a Women's Series.
For scratch races not designated as Women's Series events, women can race in the standard Combine grades with separate recognition of results (eg WA race with C grade as a combined bunch with separate results). One benefit of racing in a combined grade is the opportunity to race in a good size bunch.
Occasionally some women do wish to race in harder grades rather than with the Women's designated grade (for instance Men's B). This is entirely your own decision and something that is supported.
See https://goo.gl/YQOrPn for more details on the Women's Series.
