They might have access to a greater number of otherwise unilaterally located skills and reasoning matrices, thus "a woman's intuition". I think woman can often see the whole picture rather than simply following a linear addition of the sum of its parts.
I am just guessing at this and looking for female accolades...

I am holding my tongue and laughing out loud. Thanks for brightening my afternoon!
