To lift a quote, since you are so fond of the technique, …
There are a million daily situations in which many women will instinctively assume that it is for a man to sort matters.
I could counter with the truth that there are a million daily situations in which many men will instinctively assume that it is for a woman to sort matters.
In my opinion, this is largely due to a long cultural history of division of labor, not of aptitude. If you don’t receive the training necessary to handle a situation, you must turn to someone who has had the training. None of us are jacks of all trades.

How many women really want to know even the basics of how their car works, the plumbing or electricity in the house, or what all those tools in the hardware store are for?
I could ask the same question and substitute “women” with “men.” As a woman who is interested in these things (and who earns a living employing that knowledge), I am always surprised at the number of men who are not interested. But that surprise is a result of my own sexism.
Just as I cannot escape the racism which was embedded in me as a child, I cannot escape the sexism of my cultural upbringing. The best I can do is notice myself being sexist, recognize I am making a judgement based on a bias, and stop myself.
