That would be my guess as well, or that it is easier to do those attacks on women, or a combination. I.e., since women are usually few in number, ukes will often be males. I find when working with tall ukes that (a) the tech often needs serious modification and (b) uke has trouble doing tsuki to my solar plexus area comfortably for them. Striking from above as in shomenuchi or grabbing from behind is much easier for a taller uke to manage. And probably is more likely 'on the street' as an attack rather than a punch.
