Google doesn't think too highly of female inventors. Search for "she invented" and Google says "Did you mean He invented?"
Link.

Maybe Google suggests most common search keywords. Probably due to this reason it identifies "he invented" with prominence.

yeah...its not that they dun identify....just the fact that there are more male inventors than females leads to this kind of a thing ..

I think Varun has got it spot on - just due to a greater search frequency. However, it's still an intersting (and funny) thing to do.
