From my experience, women have a couple of problems while driving in reverse:

1) They can't intuitively tell which direction to turn the steering in. After years, my gf STILL gets it wrong sometimes. She even uses her hands to simulate the whole thing. This is her thinking - in reverse the front moves in the opposite direction, so she turns the steering in the direction of the front of the car. That's how her mind works, it's like hardwired.

2) Can't tell distances. They just don't know where their car is in relation to everything around them. Especially at what distance.

3) Can't plan/can't look at the bigger picture. If it's just backing up, fine. But when you have to turn the car a few times, they can't plan how to go about it. Meaning which steps to take to get the car in a certain position. This situation arises pretty often here cause people don't park correctly.
