Maybe, it depends on the circumstance.
I don't know.

Basically no.. but maybe yes in some countries if it is safer for girls. (That is no ideal situation..).

There are studies showing that girls begin to defer to boys in the classroom around middle school, instead of continuing to develop confidence in their own knowledge and skills. (Hello, STEM gap.)

Teachers of both genders are also statistically shown to favor male students in co-ed settings with both positive and negative attention, while ignoring female students.

Having known women who were educated at all-girl prep schools, I think if I had a daughter I would prefer to send her to a co-ed public elementary school, but would seriously consider sending her to a girls-only school for those middle school years, and then let her help with the decision of whether to return to a co-ed setting for high school.

No. That might bring back the differences in education that existed before the Second World War: girls were only taught embroidery, knitting, cooking, playing the piano, etc., and all serious subjects were reserved for boys.
