At that price point, they'll all be spec'ed similarly. However, despite all being women's bikes, they will likely have different geometry, and some will work better than others. For example, Trek's WSD bikes fit me like crap, but Specialized's Ruby was great for me. Have her try as many as possible, or if you can find a shop with a Serotta-cycle that's willing to do a fit and take the price of the fit off the price of the bike, go with that. Even if you don't go custom, you can use those measurements to figure out which stock bikes best match her geometry.
