It is definitely a novice thing more than a gender issue since I see noob male shooters doing it all the time. One explanation for it, especially with smaller shooters, is a subconscious effort to balance the weight of the gun. Leaning back shifts more of the weight on to the torso rather than putting it all on the arms and shoulders.
