Interestingly, in Arabic-dominated nations, mathematics is considered a
"woman's job"--and the highest test scores and (when allowed to work)
mathematicians and staticians ... are women.

In Christian-dominated nations, mathematics is considered a "man's
job"--and female students' scores are low.

Culture--and its symbiont religion--have much more influence than people
embedded in those cultures want to think.
