In Hunters they say that great trophies make the men envy the one who obtained it and the women pursue him. I think it's a safe bet that part of their dying out problem is that the men only come back to hub ships or whatever when they have something to show for it, to gain female attention. We never heard any female pronouns.
I bet the women sit around talking about their male's hot trophies.
This reminds me the other day I was at a train station and two teenage girls were next to me talking and this was their literal conversation:
Girl 1: OMG did you see him, he is soooo hot.
Girl 2: And his car is amazing!
Girl 1: I love his car! He looks soooo hot in it!
