While there are certainly women who could hurt me, in my experience thus far it's not particularly hard to just hold many of them at arms length while trying to speak some calm sense into the situation. Then again, I've only had this sort of experience with inebriated women.

I think it depends on the circumstances, but generally the male is far more capable of extricating themselves from the situation without either party suffering serious injury than the female is. I'm having a hard time thinking of a circumstance where I'd punch a woman in the face, unless perhaps she's in arm's length and is some lunatic with a gun or something.
Otherwise, I'd just leave... I once had a seriously drunk girl at a bar accidentally burn me with her lit cigarette and when I informed her of this she spit on me (she was trashed and already quite angry for seemingly no reason); I won't lie, a part of me wanted to chuck her across the room at that point and it was probably the closest I've come to actually wanting to harm someone (not for the accidental burn but that she had the nerve to spit on me for warning her as she continued to drunkingly flail her cig hand about), but I kept calm, the bouncer threw her out despite her hilariously emotional protests, and about a minute later I was given a free beer and had a funny conversation about it while none of us were hurt (outside of my cigarette burn lol) or faced future legal issues.
It's just better to avoid hitting someone when you can, and very rarely with either gender are you left with no options.
