I had 2 women who regularly used my darkroom. I knew them, so it wasn't an issue, but I understand the hesitance some people have. In fact, I often left them keys, so they could work when I wasn't home. They knew what they were doing, and cleaned the darkroom well...
On a semi-related note, I sometimes wonder why people don't list their locations. Often, I see a "first time developing film-what do I need" post, and would give a tank/reels/ chemistry, if I knew they lived near me.
I also think it would be great if Ilford's ad department would use regular people to promote film/darkroom use. Photos of people, in their home darkrooms (be it permanent or temporary), with text explaining why they still work with traditional materials, and why they choose Ilford products. Most non-film people think this is expensive and complicated. They need to know it's not.
