Even if she
pick a fight, or start an argument, it's rarely ever wise (or necessary) to perpetuate the physical/verbal/whatever violence.
I don't know if she did, or did not, instigate that fight. But I do know two wrongs don't make a right. So if she put her hands on him/got violent, he should have walked away, unless his life was at stake. That's my take no matter who the offender is. I don't discriminate based on sex, personally.
If a woman gets violent with a man, it's just as bad(imo) as when a man gets violent with a woman.
I don't care for putting your hands on another person and harming them. Self defense is one thing, when your life is at stake and you cannot get away from the situation without physically defending yourself against the attacker. But more times than not, there is no need to reciprocate the violence. Doing so is only going to escalate the problem.
If a man hit me, and my only only way to get out of the situation would be to incapacitate him, before fleeing...I would. If a man hit me, and I could get away without doing so, though, that is the better option. But that's just my opinion. I was taught to never fight back, unless you have to, and to only do so long enough to give yourself a window so you can escape-not to "win the fight" as it were. The whole "s/he hit me first" doesn't sit well with me, even when it's utterly necessary, it still makes my stomach cringe.
I do think overall people tend to give women a break vs men though. I don't share that opinion, but it sure does seem to be a popular one. Then again many seem to think of women as being the weaker sex too-which is another opinion I do not share.
