It's been much that way for 100 years or more. When you think about it, most songs sung by women were written by men. I'm a great admirer of Carole King. She's written hundreds of songs for other people, but the lyrics for most during her early career were written by her husband, Gerry Goffin. Now some of them are excellent and well thought out, but others are as I'm suggesting. Take this for example, a record I bought a couple of months ago, written by them, but sung by Skeeter Davis. If you listen to the lyrics, she's happy being treated as a total doormat. Carole King eventually wasn't so happy getting the same treatment from her husband, she ditched him.
