It depends where you play whether they allow checking or not. But I think the reasoning is that compared with the men women are just more likely to be injured by a body check, this is scientific fact. But I've always thought that if I as a woman want to play a sport, I accept the risks rather than adjust the rules to give myself some small peace of mind

And yeah, no body checking doesn't mean no contact. The 'non contact' league I play in is still physical enough to keep the fun in hockey in my inexperienced opinion!
