I just want to point out, that the fact psychology is now "dominated" by women is a very new phenomena. In fact, as early as maybe 30-40 years ago, women were rarely admitted to PhD programs in psychology. I had a professor last semster who was near retirement who said his cohort (and in general cohorts for clinical psych around the time he was admitted) were majority male. Only one or two women had been admitted and during the welcome speech by the dept director, he essentially said, "I don't know who admitted you guys, but you likely won't last long". He said the couple women he knew in his cohort had worked for multiple years in research labs prior to even being considered for admittance. (btw, this is all at a top R1 university). Also, take a look at the number of older male professors you've each had throughout the years vs the number of older females.
There's an article about all this..the fact that there is a recent increase in women in the field...if I can find it I'll post it up.
I personally think it's starting to level out more. I'm seeing more and more men decide to major in this field, and especially in neuroscience and neuropsych based clinical labs.
