TGH: Ch. 28 - Killing Women

TITLE: Great Hunt
CHAPTER: 28 - A New Thread in the Pattern
Urien seemed astounded. He looked at the Shienarans, sitting their horses all around, as if he suspected some trick. "You are not a Maiden of the Spear," he said slowly. "How could I strike at a woman who has not wedded the spear? It is forbidden except to save life, and then I would take wounds to avoid it."
I forgot the connection between this and Rand's obsession with not killing women. Just thought I'd note it, and maybe come back to it later.

Of course, Rand's case is different, as he is also averse to fighting a woman who is wedded (or maybe engaged, or just in a not-too-serious relationship) with the spear.
