if you only have a limited amount of time, i say focus on positional dominance.
basically, get them on top and get them to run away.
if it clicks right away, teach them a few basic subs from guard--armbar, triangle, omoplata, kimura.
if it doesn't click, don't worry so much about the subs. it would be like:
"i'm getting raped... but i know subs. hmmm... what can i do from this position? i know! i'll kimura him while he's forcefully pounding away at my vag."
i wouldn't teach them subs if they're not training a lot.

Do NOT forget to demonstrate a technical standup from the guard (escaping from bottom) and have them drill it. It is easier to do than sweeps and just as important for women's SD.
Just adding my 2 cents. Consider spending less time on sweeps from the guard and more time on getting the feet on the hips to create space, kick hard to the face and then stand up out of guard.
To hell with this. Just buy Tim Cartmell's 2nd self-defense tape (Ground Proofing) and do that.
Technical standup is a great idea, actually.
How long is the class? The time available really dictates what you can teach.
We posted at the same time. I'll say I agreed with you immediately, that "escape from the mount" would be a much better use of time than training to get from the mount into the guard. When it comes down to it, working the guard would mean working submissions, by by own statements and uphill battle for the small woman / large man situation.

This is a position they will most likely find themselves in in that situation so learning how to escape it effectively and get back to your feet would be pretty important.

Yeah it's important, but what about sprawling and takedown defence?
