In an individual women’s case, knowledge can be power. If she understands the red pill, a reasonably accurate model of reality, she can make decisions that maximize her benefit. Ideally these decisions would be mutually beneficial to her and her partner, but they can also be used in a very self-serving manner. Note that red-pill knowledge is not good or evil in itself, but is just that, knowledge.
As for women as a whole, red-pill knowledge and its spread is definitely bad news. This is why they fight every aspect of it so vociferously, calling men who touch it losers, basement dwellers, misogynists, etc. Notice that name calling does nothing to refute any red-pill knowledge; but does have the benefit to women of distraction; discouraging many from looking deeper.
Why do women as a whole hate red pill knowledge? Firstly, it captures most of the truth with respect to the sexes and their relationships in the present day. It reveals the true nature of women, and the pretty lies that attempt to cover this truth up. The present system is built upon these lies; the true reality being a real threat to the stability of this system.
Even as the system muddles along, red-pill knowledge will of course allow individual men to check-out, to become MGTOW. Even though sometimes women act like they don’t want to get married, they really do. More MGTOWs in existence alter the marriage market in a way that does not favor women. Due the the one-to-one nature of the transactions of the market, a small percentage change to the inputs can dramatically alter the outputs.
In the end, red pill knowledge might be beneficial to individual women; however it primarily shifts power to men individually and as a whole.

I missed the discussion on what the terms Red Pill and Blue Pill mean; but for me, Red Pill is the pursuit of truth over comfort, while Blue Pill is the pursuit of comfort over truth. With that understanding, I think women would absolutely benefit from the Red Pill. In the more common usage of Red Pill, though, I’m less sure about it. Women as they are now need to feel ‘magic’ in their relationships (EWALT), and I’m not sure having a thorough understanding of how men and women relate will help, if they’re not prepared to give up the fairytales.
If they insist on Twu Wuv, the less they know how the sausage is made, the better. It’s only magic because you don’t know how it works.

I’ve never met a RP woman. The scientist in me suggests that this is for a reason: the notions are incompatible with XX chromosomal types. It’s just incompatible with the feminine-primary society that allows them options that men lack, and allows them to run two sets of books. And it’s incompatible with basal nature: can someone point to a single woman who manages her own hypergamic instincts? I can’t. Well, Katherine Hepburn, but she was a unicorn. (She chose Spencer Tracy over Howard Hughes.)
In addition, given a woman’s social needs for female peer approval, even if all of her friends pine for a man we would term “Red Pill”, they’ll never admit it. Instead they’ll gossip about which woman has the man with the best job and largest package (implicitly suggesting they know the difference between alpha and everyone else).
Back in the J4G days, I concluded RP is a secret society, and today I’m more convinced. The term is creeping into the public square (somewhere around the gutters!) but it’s still more of a perjorative (like Alt-Right) than a descriptive term.
Would women benefit? Sure. But they’d benefit from being better at math and music, too, and that ain’t going to happen, either.
