My wife thinks I should teach her to play right-handed. Since she's never played before, it won't be like she'd have to unlearn anything.
However, I'm concerned that I could be potentially limiting her later on because she might not ever fully develop the dexterity she might have otherwise developed if I had just gotten her a left-handed guitar to start with.
If she becomes a serious player, it is more difficult to find preferred equipment lefthanded. I started teaching my son to play right handed as well (he's a lefty). I think if you already have the equipment, check to see how well she responds and how perservering she is. I don't know, so far my son hasn't shown the followthru to prove me right.
