Ladies Meetings

Is it sexist to advertise a 'Ladies Meeting'? This is a question I have been puzzling over whilst trying to organise a book evening for 'Carers of Children' (!). We are planning an open evening in the shop with a focus on children's books. It is really intended for ladies - Mum's, Aunts, Grandmas - anyone with an interest in buying children's books. Not necessarily Sunday School material (that will be another special open evening!). Jeremy feels that the atmosphere would subtly change if men were present. Hummm...
Can anyone help me with some wording that offends neither male or 'non child friendly' females, (but on the other hand excludes both)?

Don't worry, all the while Dewsbury sports centre has 'ladies swim' I don't think its a problem having a ladies only book evening!!
Failing that, say you have to wear pink to be eligible for any discount!
