  Well, the problem is of Debian in general, not only of the lists, so this
is a weak assumption.

  Letting they come here first doesn't avoid they end on the appropriate
list. Setting the CC works also from debian-women. Also the problem may be
solved here before leaving, so I do not see how this increases problem
proportion in the existing list.

  So the basis for posting-debian-woman badness is that people here won't be
able of caring enough to avoid such dispersion?

  A dangerous assumption IMO, I expected better grounded reasons.
