The armour itself is essentially an offensive weapon. Whether she carries ballistic missiles or not. The suit itself is still quite deadly. It's not terribly likely she would simply run to safety (which is acting like a damsel) and not take part in fighting in whatever way she can.

I don't want to see her fighting the final battle alongside IM or anything but I don't want her just waiting for IM to come and save her. After all, no one here disagrees she is the easiest way for a villain to hurt Stark. If she had a suit to take her to safety, it eliminates that threat.
Giving her armour doesn't automatically make her less of a damsel (which she hasn't been in the last two films). Especially not how you seem to define her and the suit. If anything you seem to be reducing her to the role of damsel as Rescue and therefore the armour under those conditions seems to be a backwards character development.
