From the bottom of Advanced Women (800) to the top of pro women (currently 969) you have a 169 point spread. Other than the outlier Brakel women who don't actually play in the Advanced Women's division, the top advanced women are near or under 900, for a spread of about 100 points in FA1.
From the bottom of Advanced Men (935) to the top of pro men (1043) there is a 108 point spread. The top advanced men who are playing in the division are rated around 1000 for a spread of 65 points in MA1.
I think a mathematical argument could be made for redefining the ratings breaks for women's divisions upwards about 35 points. I think it would have the effect of making the women's advanced division mostly a theoretical concept except at Worlds and well attended women's tournaments. But the women's advanced division already is a mostly theoretical concept in a lot of regions, so that should not be a problem.
