While there has been a long history of discrimination against women, the framework of the 14th Amendment was designed only to outlaw race-based discrimination. Also, biological differences between men and women make it more likely that gender classifications will be justified. Furthermore, women are not considered to be "discrete and insular" minorities. See Craig v. Boren.

while women have been historically discriminated against, and they did not "choose" to be women, they are not exactly a minority. the point of the strict scrutiny with race, aliens, national origin, etc. is due to the small size of them and they can't mobilize and correct issues themselves
