Facial recognition and women?

Anyone got any insight into why it works less well in recognising women?

I understand questions about bias in data sets and shadows with darker skin types not being recognised, but surely there are plenty of samples of women in the image databases?

I'd have thought the bias would be the other way - too many pictures of women!
