New shooter gun recomendations

A friend of my wife wants to buy a handgun and get a carry permit. She has never fired a handgun in her life. She wants me to take her shooting and she knows she wants a Semi Auto. I was thinking of taking her to Surplus City so she can rent and shoot several different types of handguns. I know they have plenty of Glocks and some 1911's to rent. Dont know about revolvers. She has no shortage of cash so she can pretty much get any gun she wants. She is 5'5 and average build with medium-small hands. Recomendations? Recomendations on what she should do first? I know a gun safety/handling class is a must.

let her try everything she can get her hands on and then suggest that she go with the largest caliber she can handle and still enjoys shooting.

designating calibers as "not for women" seems kind of silly to me since I have heard of alot (and seen one) of women shoot .357s and .45s with no problem...once you remove the stigma you can really get down to brass tacks and see what works for her
