I realize that men and women are different but are the points allowance different for men at say 180 than a woman at 180?

Weight Watchers PointsPlus is a universal program. There is no difference between the values for men and women. Each individual is assigned a different PointsPlus target range based on gender, age, goal weight and other factors.

Using the PointsPlus Calculator, I entered these values: age 45, height 5'8", weight 180. The femaie calculation was 29 pts per day, The male's calculation was 35 points per day, so YES, there is a daily points difference between men and women of the same weight, height, and age.
