Do we need a Darwinian explanation for this? I think more proximate reasons may be at hand. Of course, things may be different in Colorada Springs but if so that only makes a Darwinian explanation even less likely.
It would be interesting to look at the educational syllabus that the older believers were exposed to. How long ago was it that girls were taught needlework and cookery rather than science?

Certainly the school that my wife teaches at was started with a view to giving girls the same educational opportunities as boys.
