No, it wont. And the reason for that is that it would be a single factor untested in isolation from other factors. A scientific explanation, undertaken by folk who actually understand science in the first place, would be done on the basis of testing with all all other factors eliminated or accounted for.
In other words, the skills of male versus female chefs would need to be compared on the basis of their skills as chefs, not on the basis of their relative success 'dominating an area.' Especially whenother factors, specifically social and cultural factors could (and most certainly do) determine the applicability of the area to the perception of success and the capability of achieving success.
In other words, attempting to handwave away the success of women in a male-defined and male-controlled occupation as 'brain differences' is ignorant at best, and inherently dishonest at worst.
