That's pretty close to what I have my wife and daughter do. They use an AB, 2-a-week schedule.

I stick with 10 reps on everything, but find barbell presses to be the most challenging with that rep range, so I could see slightly lower reps depending on the woman and her strength. My daughter can't do much more than 5 reps with a bar, so we stick with 5 rep sets.

I also use rack pulls from below the knee, but SLDL certainly works too.

For squats, both my gals are a bit shaky with depth yet yet, so I have them do primarily box squats. They do much better with depth when they train with a box, so it's primarily a confidence tool. Mileage may vary on this.
