I dont think that would be the effect / a sensible message neither. I rather 
envision more involvement from women who otherwise would be "silent 
observers", even more involvement from women who are already active, also 
less wasted time due to male-centric discussions on topics, etc. Plus other 
effects I'm too busy to imagine now ;-)

And, by all means do what you envision - I just wondered since it absolutly 
wasnt (and isnt) obvious to me.
