So do I assume that every woman you fired called you names and threatened to take you to court?  :D :D

I would never advertise a position. Instead I would ask around the local community to see who might be looking for work. Then I'd check them out, look into their background, talk to people they've worked for, and then approach them to see if they're interested in the work. If someone were to hear that I was potentially hiring and approached me, that's fine, it shows initiative. I'd still check the person out.

If you do your homework before hiring, you won't have much firing to do.

Gender is not a factor. Work ethic is. Or for people entering the work force, a willingness to learn work ethic.
