Default Forward Stance for Women?

Every woman ive taken to the range has leaned back while shooting, in a similar fashion to this lady in the video link.

My question is this: while the women I know can make hits just fine while leaning back and find the traditional forward-stance Iscosoles position uncomfortable-"I feel like I'm falling over" said my pal's wife as of her last range visit-I see pro shooters like Jessie Abbate making hits too w/the same forward leaning stance my lady friends find uncomfortable.

Women of Calguns, what say you on the matter? Is the "women's lean" just a phase women shooters go through before adapting to the standard forward shooting position, or is it just the case that the female pro shooters are so well practiced that they're used to feeling like they're falling over all the time?
