    Ive been playing chess for about 35 years but never competitively. Unless I am mistaken, why is it that women and men are seperate in tournaments? I get it in baseball, football, wrestling, etc. But why in chess? doesnt make much sense to me.

    Are there separate tournaments? At least here tournament are open both except few specially for women.

    In over the board tournaments there are women only tournaments and women only titles. In ICCF Correspondence Tournaments there are also Ladies only competitions.
