Only Men had the vote until the early 1920s, Woman didn't have much political power until after WW2 in 1945. Women had some members of Congress. Since the 1970s and Feminism there has been a rise in political awareness and a new cohort of women politicians, CEOs, Military, Law and upwardly mobile women that had political aspirations beyond business. That crop of women are now among the group that is running for POTUS.
There are more to come in that pipeline some of which are still in College.
Other factors, I hesitate to say are "whispers" Patriarchy.
