US Presidential Elections: It's a woman thing.

Whilst checking over the recent democrat primary results for the US Presidential Elections, I've come across something quite startling. Women are out-voting men by a large margin. On average by about 15-20%. Would this happen in the UK? Without trying to sound like a chauvinist pig, as a general rule men tend to be more interested in politics than our better halves. What is driving so many American women to the polling booths? Exit polls show that those women are voting for Hillary in a big way - is there a strong desire amongst US women to have a female president at any cost, or do they genuinely prefer Hillary's policies?
