Why are there so few female fashion photographers?

Paola Kudacki and Ellen von Unwerth are in fact known for their sexy/semi-erotic work more than anything else and almost all of their editorials have that element, just as much as Mert and Marcus or Mario Sorrenti do. So I don't think there's really any difference in talent for different things, the lack of women in any field ultimately comes down to the patriarchy and society's tendency to force women into roles and not let them into jobs that they are willing and qualified to do just because there's a man who might be willing and might be almost as qualified.
The only reason artistic visions could possibly have gender is because society forces certain ideals on women (and this could include artistic standpoints and aesthetic perferences) rather than letting them do whatever they want, like society does with men. It's not a genetic difference, it's a societal one, and the societal one is on its way, even if by baby steps, to being eradicated.
