Female Bike Fit - issues

Please help,

My girlfriend is new to cycling, she claims to have pains when trying to lift her head up and to be comfortable in the hoods, therefore feels most comfortable riding gripped on the bars (as you would climbing).

The stem was a 100 which I've changed to 90 to reduce the reach, and we've also tried various saddle heights and resorted back to the hip height/almost straight leg when heel is at the bottom of rotation.

I don't have a trained eye for this sort of thing, I can manage myself by feel. Can anyone see any totally obvious fails from these two images?? All suggestions appreciated.
