Construction wise? Not really... Although women tend to have smaller feet for the same weight person as a guy, so they tend to be more narrow, and available in shorter sizes.

Nothing wrong with a girl riding a mens board, and a smaller guy riding a womens board.

I believe they also tend to make them a little softer than their male equivalent. Here's Priors comments on the Brandywine, their female version of a freeride board:

"The Brandywine, Priorís high performance, directional freeride board for women, draws a smooth, stable and fast line through all snow conditions. With a narrow waist and softer flex than the Menís Freeride, the Brandywine allows women to drive the board harder and maximize energy transfer for the best ride possible."
