Female? Moving to/Living in Taiwan?

Advice, thoughts and resources for women planning to move to Taiwan or those who have just arrived and are scrambling to find resources. I find that these resources can be quite scant on the expat networks here, which are male dominated simply because there are more male expats here than female. We need info somehow, though, and this is the best way I could think to provide it.
