Why Only Romantic Comedies?

Why is it that films marketed towards women, and featuring female protagonists, largely come in the form of romance genres and romantic comedies?  I don’t think there is anything wrong with romance genres overall, but it is about time there is some diversification.  Let’s be real.  Action, mystery, and sci-fi flicks, even when they have female characters, are really targeted towards guys. 

The Hunger Games and Harry Potter are nice exceptions.  Hopefully, we see more like them.
