I play in the BIPHA league in Scotland (British Inline Puck Hockey Association) which is not necessarily co-ed or mens only. It is a roller hockey league anyone can play in -- and is extremely competitive at the Senior level, containing what are considered the top teams in Scotland. Several women play in the league, which uses standard IIHF/FIRS type rules.
After playing on a team with a female player I can honestly say I have no idea why you would need special rules for females. It is a very intense league, with some games becoming quite rough. It is still, however, a non-check league (as roller hockey should be).
The idea of scoring goals differently or somehow have rules to treat certain players differently seems sexist and entirely unnecessary.
After seeing it first hand -- I strongly believe roller hockey is a truly co-ed sport. The female population in the game may not be the more brutish type, but they can certainly survive as finess players.
Just my opinion, but I would use the same rulebook and interpret the rules exactly the same.
