Default Shotgun with less recoil for my wife

I initially posted this in the shotgun forum, but it was suggested that I also post here.

We have an 870 that we originally bought for home defense. My wife doesn't like to fire it though because of the recoil. So I'm looking for a shotgun that we can use for home defense, maybe hunting in the future, and has less recoil. I'd like to stick with 12 gauge if possible.

I've read a little about the Remington 1100 and 11-87, both seem like decent options. I've also read about stocks that absorb more recoil than others. She's fairly small, about 5'3" and 120 lbs.

Any other options or suggestions that I should look into?
