software engineers are glorified programmers (nothing wrong with that), and math degrees are not science.
Women stay away from the non-life sciences and engineering in droves, they are not as suited for it, nor as interested. Women have the luxury of choosing majors based on interest and passing fancy (media studies and art history majors for example, are almost all women or gay men). Men tend to major in areas that relate directy to income.
