idk... I looked at the size charts. The only women's things where a small was a 0 - 4 (that I saw) was the capris, and the description notes that these are Bella brand, which run small. Even the ladies fitted tees.... the description with the size charts notes that these run small, order a size up. I'd agree that it seems like the typical, non uniform type sizing. Why is a men's small always a small, but a women's small can sometimes actually be an extra-small, depending on the brand. It's as though every manufacturer gets to decide how small a "small" is.
(Whew, now the word "small" seems really strange, after saying it so many times!)
And of course there are women who are a 0. Even if the "average" woman was a size 14 -16, that doesn't mean all the slim women need to be skipped, and sizes started larger. I'd have to say that *most* of the time, 0-4 is an extra small, and small starts around a size 6 or 4-6. Medium can be 8-10 or 10-12, depends on the brand. You have to read the descriptions of the fit carefully, and look at the measurements given for the sizes. I saw several women's tees that went up to 4x.
