The Distaff Debate: "Should women's events be separated from men's?"

In the current July 06 issue of CHESS LIFE, the above hot-button topic is debated by GM Susan Polgar in the affirmative and by Marcy Soltis in the negative.

I've been playing CC for over 45 years and cannot remember a time when the sexes were segregated in CC events. GM Polgar uses two main facts in her argument for separate OTB events: 1. The US has never produced a Women's world champion, grandmaster or top-10 player. 2.According to USCF statistics, the majority of girls drop out of chess around 4th or 5th grade.
