Leupold has a binocular (Green Ring Yosemite) that is great for women and kids (they adjust closer together which is great because our eyes are closer together than a man's). BTW, men like them, too. They run about $100 depending on where you get them and they are really light, small, and clear. My husband has a pair of Steiners and he was really impressed with the Leupold binos. They come is 6X, 8X and 10X.
