Female Directors

As a woman (and I promise this is not a feminist rant), I find it interesting that women are not more prevalent in film directing. I'm obviously not in the business to know what it takes for any gender director to get into the class of the elite but there are a ton of female directors that are awesome, like these best female directors for instance, yet for the most part, when you think of the all time greats, there are few if any women listed. My question is more is it harder for women to get big film directing gigs or are their movies just seen as inferior by the public? Where is the disconnect here?
