Depletion of Healthy Young Women?

My main character needs to use healthy young women for his cause, but I need some historical events that would lead to difficulties for him.
I have:

The witch trials: the type of girl he uses would almost certainly be suspected
The plague: I'm not keen on using this, as it isn't specific to women
The French Revolution:Female members of the aristocracy would be better fed than peasants and therefore be healthier
The wives of Henry VIII

Any other examples where a woman/women have been targeted and killed in any period in history, preferably in Europe, would be really helpful.
Time isn't an issue as he is pretty much immortal.
