Seperation of Genders?

I recently found myself involved in a set of separate men's and women's retreats. While turnout at the actual events was good, there was a lot of discussion leading up to the event about whether or not separating the genders was ok. Personally I think it's a very valid experience we don't often get in western cultures. Most of my spiritual workings are solitary or "co-ed", but every now and then I think the ladies and gents need some time apart.

I have a very eclectic religious perspective and come from a home where men and women are on a pretty even footing. I don't see either as inferior, and in this case I don't feel separation implies inequality. How do your background or religious beliefs affect how you feel on the subject?
