Having said that, the most popular arrow brands around here are Easton, Gold Tip, Carbon Express and a few folks shoot Beman and the Ted Nugent arrows. I use Easton Axis 400's for hunting and target shooting in the yard and recently purchased Easton Fatboy 400's for indoor.

I dont think there is a difference between the arrow a woman selects versus what a man does. I think what needs to be conisdered is what you intend to get out of your shooting.
Case in point... I shoot skinnies I stay away from fat boys because I want to be as accurate as I can. Whether I am shooting firearms or archery for as long as I have been shooting for me its accuracy. I personally feel that shooting fat boys takes away from the marksmanship as the thicker arrows are pretty much good for "cutting lines". This means that if you shoot skinnies and your competitor shoots fat boys when the both of you are evaluating your score and the arrow is barely in the 10 ring the fat boy will have more of a chance to cut that line and give you the 10 where as the skinny will not. Plus like today, when I am shooting spots and I have a half dollar sized spot out at 30 yards and I am looking to place that arrow in the center its a thrill to do it with a skinny arrow and when the onlookers see what I am doing it with I kinda like the impressive looks they give me.
I shoot carbons I like the way they fly and I think they tend to fly faster and straighter vs aluminums. As far as manufacturers I am pretty good on my arrows so I go with price. But the ones Ron, and the others mentioned are kewl.
Just my two cents if its worth anything.

Lots of arrows are either 1/4" or 5/16" for carbon but can go bigger.
Length is custom for your usage, and spine requirements.
Field points are sized to match the shaft, and come in various weight measured in grains. 85, 90, 100 and 125 grains are common.
Now, what are you doing?
