    You won't change her mind = You can't do anything to make her think differently
    so there is little use in trying = It is a wasted effort to try to make her think differently
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thanks a lot for your reply , and If I use " You won't be able to change her mind " Would that be also ok in this sentence ?

    Yes.
