US Mixed Doubles Nationals

Can teams switch the player that thorws 1st rock during a mixed doubles game? And why has it evolved that nearly all teams have women throw 1st/last rocks?

Ooh, ooh, a question I can guarantee the answer to...well...half at least.

Per the rules (WCF R15.D, paralleled in the CCA and USCA rules), "...The player delivering the first stone can change from end to end".

I can't definitively speak as to why the current strategic vogue is F-M-M-M-F, but I suspect it's because of a potential perceived value in having the stronger takeout player in the middle shots, where that may be advantageous. A lot of mixed ends have last stones as touch draws, where there isn't as much inherent strength variance between the genders as there is in high hits.
