Well i don't know about clubs abroad but there certainly aren't any womans teams in the UK that i'm aware of, other than National teams that is. As for individual competitions, there are loads of womans tournaments internationally. They don't always receive the same coverage as mens though, which probably has more to do with the grades involved rather than any male bias. Womans chess is probably covered more widely than mens at the same grading category..
