The vast majority of women developers that I've known were originally from India, China, or another Asian country, where it's normal to drive women towards an engineering career path. In America, the tradition is to make starting a career in software development painful so that people get driven away (men and women alike), and only people who learn to enjoy programming on their own end up still in that career path.

My wife got a degree in psychology and started a career in social work because that's what felt right to her when she was just starting college; in America, people do what feels right. I don't think you're going to change that kind of culture overnight.
