Ladies in BJJ/Grapling

Not much ladies from South East Asia(local) train and compete in BJJ or submission grappling. One of the main reason is because most of them worry they will take advantage by men while they roll with men. Besides, the culture around this region also make ladies rather train in other self defence discipline such like Taekwondo, Karate, Wushu, Kickboxing or Muay Thai (less clinching?hugging on floor?)
Well, the situation here is getting better since we can see more ladies compete in FTB BJJ/Submission tournament in Bangkok this September. I do hope more and more ladies start to learn and love this sport. Here is some of the ladies BJJ competator i like much.
