We're out there.
I think the ratio is actually pretty equal, maybe leaning towards men slightly. The only reason I can really think of is safety. There tends to be significantly more danger to the average woman in a confrontation than a man should things go awry, especially when you don't have a weapon for defense on you. A lot of my other female friends are deterred by that, particularly because in Canada weapons generally aren't carried and it'd look suspicious as hell to bring a gun or something out to an abandoned spot.
Males tend to be more adventurous, stronger and greater risk takers; some of the biological attributes of elevated testosterone levels.
However curiosity is a large part of what drives urban explorers in my opinion.
Anywhere you think you will need a weapon is a place not worth the risk and should be avoided regardless of gender.
With an attacker 10-20 feet away you may not even have time to pull a weapon.
Best to spot potential trouble asap, avoid contact and preferably detection.
People are trouble.
