What Do We Make of CWRIS and ANDRES?

Would the women and children have been seated with the men?  In the
synagogues this was certainly not the case, nor was it in the early
Christian church.  I wonder if the groups of 50 were men, and the women and
children were seated apart from (CWRIS) them in another section/area?
