In my city-based Lunar campaign, the male leaders are generally in charge of the military and the civil government, while the female ones are generally heads of the Lunar cults. While these top Lunars are equally divided in gender terms, those across the city as a whole are not - since they include old-style Dara Happans and Carmanians, among others. So this seems to fit with Greg's vision - but YGWV, of course.

Darsen, from what I gather, is unusual, in that it has always had a predominance of female rulers, even in pre-Lunar times.
